Cultivar Notes - 'Raspberry Ripple'
Tall, sturdy stalks of soft pink flowers with raspberry streaking add a bold vertical element to the garden. These spikes arise from a tight rosette of huge green leaves. If sited properly and deadheaded, it will bloom most of the summer.
Genus Notes - Verbascum
Most gardeners know Mullein as a towering roadside weed, but there are many good garden plants in the group. They offer dense spikes of cupped blooms, generally in late spring and early summer. Well-drained soil and sun are the keys to success.
