Description How to Grow Delivery

This is a lovely plant for the early to mid-summer, sporting flowers which are a rare, rich purple that look fabulous contrasted with acid yellow euphorbias and orange geums. Verbascum phoeniceum ‘Violetta’ bears erect, airy stems carrying many thin-petalled flowers which rise from basal rosettes of semi-evergreen, crinkled leaves.  Although this is a short-lived perennial plants readily self-seed without being unduly invasive. Drought tolerant once established and good for pollinators. Height: 90cm (35”). Spread: 45cm (18”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
