A short-lived perennial flowering from June to July, ''Cotswold beauty' has spikes of pinky-buff flowers with an attractive purple eye. After flowering, cut the spike level with the last flower to encourage a second flush. Like all verbascums it does best on poor, well-drained soil, preferably neutral to alkaline, with plenty of sunshine. On better soils it can grow too tall and may need support. Verbascums bring welcome height and structure to planting schemes and work well in both traditional, cottage-style gardens and contemporary schemes. They are very fashionable at the moment and are frequently seen in show gardens.
