Verbascum ‘Summer Sorbet’


Hybrid Mullein

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.537.380


Cousins to the common roadside mullein, the Hybrid Mulleins are unusual, showy plants for the well-drained sunny border. Plants form a flat rosette of triangular green leaves with branching spikes of flowers in a bright magenta-purple shade, with darker purple eye. Flowers appear over a long period, and the spikes are excellent for cutting.
