A stately perennial for the back of the border with slender spires of white flowers with mauve eye. The leaves covered with white woolly hairs add to the overall charm and make this a fine subject for blending with plants of harsher colours. Useful for flower arranging. Flowers summer. Height 120-150cm (4-5ft).
1 packet (125 verbascum seeds) (25616)
