Verbascum phoeniceum is not uncommon, but customers always ask us about this short-lived perennial. They love the muted purple of the cup-shaped flowers facing outward covering the erect flower stems. The midgreen basal foliage is conspicuously veined and crinkled.

Late spring to early summer.  2-3 ft. x 18 in.
