Verbascum General Information

Verbascum are bold plants with large velvety foliage. Flowers are atop towering spikes held well above the foliage.

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.
