RICH VIOLET FLIOWERS WITH GOLDEN STAMENS – AN INCREDIBLE ADDITION TO YOUR GARDEN! ATTRACTS BEES AND BENEFICIAL INSECTS! VIOLETTA IS THE MOST COMPACT OF THE VEBASCUM SPECIES.

This one doesn’t mind poor soils and is able to bloom twice in one season! The flowers last for weeks on the upright stems! Once flowering has finished they make handsome seed heads that become red and black for Autumn.

The soft and fluffy leaves used to be used by the poor to line their shoes in the cold weather in England!

These plants look incredible in dry, coastal or cottage gardens. They need to be kept out of strong winds and the seeds will self-seed if you don’t remove the seed pods. Gather the seeds to share with your gardening buddies!

Verbascums are commonly known as Mullein. These are evergreen perennials, the foliage disappearing only briefly in the coldest of climates.

THIS MULLEIN IS NOT MEDICINAL.

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in well-draining soil. They don’t mind alkaline soils, and as long as you water them when they are young, they don’t need much after that.

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings in Spring or Autumn, by placing on the soil surface and pressing gently to ensure soil contact. You can scatter sand very thinly over if needed to stop birds eating the seed but do not fully cover as they need light to germinate.

Keep soil moist, but not wet. Wet and boggy conditions will rot your plants.

Germination
14-30 days at 18-21°C

Maturity
100 days.
