Verbascum bombyciferum Arctic Summer
9 cm sized pot. This biennial verbascum is a show stopper. In its first year it forms a rosette of silver grey foliage then in its second year it reaches for the sky, over 1.5m tall and covered with furry white buds that open to reveal bright electric yellow flowers. Copes with very dry conditions. Will self-seed. This is a much talked about plant in the gravel area that leads down to our pond. Looks great with large canna, tall cardoons and towering Rudbeckia laciniata.
