Verbascum  phoeniceum 'Violetta'

Purple Mullein

A reliable purple-flowering, easy-to-grow plant with paper-like flowers. 

As many verbascum are quite tall, 'Violetta' being a little shorter is ideally suited to smaller gardens. 

It can be treated as biennial although it is a short lived perennial that will freely self sow around the garden in a similar manner to foxgloves. Dead heading will encourage further flower spikes. 

Grow in poor, dry, very well drained soil in full sun.
