Verbascum 'Blue Lagoon'

Plant details

The tall, erect spikes of Verbascum 'Blue Lagoon' are packed with small, blue flowers with yellow stamens that continue to right through summer. It makes a striking show for the middle to back of a multi-coloured border or white bed, and is easily grown from seed, giving plenty of plants to thread throughout the garden. Free-draining ground is vital, also making it a good contender for Mediterranean-type areas with plenty of sun and light soil.
