Verbascum - Snow Maiden

Janey

By Janey


Verbascum - Snow Maiden (Verbascum)

4ft tall now, I planted this beauty out in August, thinking it may flower next year. Totally the wrong place I thought, shady and damp and yet it's flowering well now....:o))

Wow Janey...my seed grown ones never left the ground, they flowered but the leaves lay flat on the soil...strange???

Aw that's a shame Moti, these really took off, Sim,bad kindly sent me the seeds a couple of years ago and when I sowed them late Spring, I was expecting the smaller spring ones, but this is great for late summer, the leaves are a lot greyer than the pic shows and really hairy, I know they do prefer sun and free draining conditions, but all doing well....:o)

Thanks Dd and Tet, it does seem to be a cross between the Olympicum and the Phoeniceum, very tall with pretty flowers.
