Cultivar Notes - 'Plum Smokey'
Large, tight rosettes of glaucous, green leaves give way to a bouquet of flowering stems which nicely display the smoky-purple flowers.
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.
