A fun, stately plant, it sends up a tall spike covered in pale yellow, saucer-like flowers in summer, high above a rosette of semi-evergreen, grey-green leaves. When planting, make sure that there is a contrasting or complimentary colour behind, because being a see-through plant the background is as important as its immediate neighbours. All Verbascums tolerate a wide range of soils, but an excellent sunny position is vital. It has been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society.
