Verbascums are stately, tall, upright-growing, border perennials that are ideal for adding height and structure to planting schemes. 'Cotswold Queen is a tall variety with deeply-veined leaves and a pinkish-purple eye. It will fit into both bold-coloured and pastel planting schemes and is equally at home in the cottage garden or manicured border. Plants have a long flowering season throughout the summer months. Cut back the flower stems after the blooms fade to encourage plants to make further flower stems. They will grow on most soils, although it's a good idea to incorporate plenty of well-rotted manure into the border before planting, to help plants establish. Keep plants well watered during hot weather to reduce the risk of mildew which can sometimes be a problem.
