A refined look for Mullein! A compact habit and flirty spikes of creamy-yellow flowers dotted with large maroon starry centers is much more delicate when compared to its brawny roadside cousins. Like a frilled collar, large gray-green quilted foliage forms attractive rosettes at the base of each spike.

Verbascum Dark Eyes loves sun and needs no tending. This petite variety is a great cut flower for charming nosegays. Drought tolerant once established. Very deer resistant. Allow to self seed to insure future plants.

Verbascum General Information

Verbascum are bold plants with large velvety foliage. Flowers are atop towering spikes held well above the foliage. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Verbascum Plant Care

Prefers a lean, alkaline well-draining soil. Avoid highly fertile and wet soils. Mature clumps do not respond well to division. Instead, pluck out a few seedlings in spring and transplant. Allow some seeds to fall if volunteers are desired. Removing flower stalks after blooming can increase vigor for over-wintering. Taller forms benefit from staking.
