Verbascum

Pin It


Of course I've lost the name tag for this lovely flowering perennial that pops up in my garden every year at this time.  An online search brought me to this site and darned if it isn't a nursery not far from my garden from which I buy lots of flowering annuals and perennials. I do believe I bought the one pictured here from them, named Verbascum chaixii 'Album'.

Mine is not white, as the name suggests ('Album'), but rather more of a lightly blushing apricot-pink.

So I'm asking Joy if she can either corroborate my name assessment or correct me.






I'm told it will re-seed itself. But then I'm also told that if I cut back spent flowers it will bloom again.

Cut them back, or let them have their own way...

What to do?
