Delicate whorls of velvety, tissue paper deep purple blooms with buttery yellow stamens are produced as part of this wonderful variety of Verbascum. Perfect for attracting wildlife such as birds and butterflies to the summer garden, these eye-catching flowers reach a height of 90cm, shorter than most Verbascums, which is ideal for a smaller garden. They can be used to add a pop of colour to patio containers, garden borders or even as part of a cut-flower display to be enjoyed within the home. Flower from May through to August. UK-grown 5cm module plants supplied.
