Verbascum  phoeniceum 'Violetta'

Purple mullein

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.
