Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A low maintenance perennial that is a striking addition to any cottage garden large border. Verbascum olympicum rockets to up to 2 metres in height, with buttery yellow flower spikes, growing from a basal foliage of silver, felted leaves. It tends to bloom in it's third year then dies after that. However, it is a vigorous self-seeder which means other new plants can grow alongside it, ready to carry on producing massive summer displays of colour in following years. It grows well in poor soils, where many other plants would struggle to establish. 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. Cut back old stems at the base in autumn and remove any damaged and yellowing foliage. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the plant.
Grow Verbascum plants in sunny or semi shaded borders in neutral or alkaline, poor well drained soil.
