Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta'
A reliable purple-flowering, easy-to-grow plant with paper-like flowers.
As many verbascums are quite tall, 'Violetta', a more petite and delicate cultivar 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.
Dead heading will encourage more branching and further flower spikes.
Grow in poor, dry very well drained soil in full sun.
Good rich colour.
