Verbascum ‘Clementine’


Hybrid Mullein

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.537.470


A cousin to the common roadside mullein, this is an unusual and showy plant for the well-drained sunny border. Green leaves are held in a low rosette, bearing tall upright spikes with delicate blooms of soft apricot orange with a magenta eye. May require staking. Remove faded blooms to encourage more buds. Needs good drainage, especially in winter. Mulleins are not particularly long-lived perennials, but this selection has been bred to last longer than most. Developed in England by Vic Johnstone and Claire Wilson, keepers of the National Collection of Verbascums.
