Product Overview

Verbascum phoeniceum

Spectacular graceful flower spikes. Fast growing fairly drought tolerant and a beautiful cut flower.

A truly spectacular perennial! Each plant has multiple graceful spikes of blossoms in white, pink, deep rose, violet, and purple that attract butterflies. Fairly drought tolerant, fast growing, excellent in dry landscape gardens, or alone in mass plantings. Wonderful cut flowers; even dried stalks with seed pods add interest to dried arrangements.
