Plant Families / Verbascum - Mulleins
Verbascum (Mullein) is a genus of mainly summer-flowering annuals, biennals, perennials or sub-shrubs. Spectacular, Verbascums are interesting border plants with their graceful spikes of long-lasting blossoms in shades of white, pink, deep rose, violet and purple. Easy to grow, drought tolerant and deer resistant, their stately appearance and handsome vertical lines make them natural candidates for mixed borders where they will attract hummingbirds and draw the attention of onlookers. Wonderful as cut flowers, Verbascums are also great for bouquets!
