Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

For almost instant impact in cottage garden borders, look no further than Verbascum olympicum. This imposing perennial will fill a gap in hot dry borders and makes a spectacular focal point, growing to 2 metres in next to no time! The felted, silver rosette of basal foliage plays host to tall spikes of buttery-yellow flowers. Verbascum olympicum is a relatively short lived perennial, which tends to bloom in its third year, and often dies after its spectacular display. However this Mullein is a vigorous self-seeder so you can look forward to plenty of new seedlings popping through the soil to take its place.

This low maintenance perennial is an excellent summer addition to borders, performing best in poor soils where many other plants would struggle to establish. A low maintenance Mullein for cottage gardens and wildlife gardens. Height: 2m (6.6'). Spread: 60m (24").

Flowering Months
Established Verbascum plants require little maintenance. Deadhead faded flower spikes to encourage more verbascum flowers to be produced. On very fertile soils, verbascum will grow larger in size and the tall flower stems may require staking with garden canes. Cut back the old stems at the base of the plant in autumn.
Plant Mullein into well drained, neutral or alkaline soil in full sun. Verbascum will thrive on poor, gravelly soils.
