Verbascum ‘Pink Pixie’


Pixie Series Mullein

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.537.510


A refined cousin to the common roadside mullein, this is a showy and compact selection for the well-drained sunny border. Green leaves are held in a low rosette, bearing upright spikes of lightly-fragrant, pink blooms. Plants flower over a long period, and the spikes are excellent for cutting. Remove faded bloom spikes to encourage more buds. Attractive to butterflies. Hybrid Mulleins can sometimes literally bloom themselves to death: to help prevent this, cut plants back to 3 inches in early September to force new vegetative growth at the base.
