A friend of the sky and the sun!
Powerful candelabra-like inflorescences like fireworks worshipping the heavenly bodies.
Verbascum bombyciferum or Silver Mullein is impressive in the garden with its beautiful, downy, silvery foliage in rosettes.
Mass planting gives verticality to a bed and can contrast effectively with the moving foliage of grasses (Panicum, Stipa).
Planted on its own it is an excellent feature plant to highlight a corner or a pathway.
For mixed borders, gravel gardens, rockeries, patios and meadow gardens.
Grow in the sun in ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry. Biennial. Re-seeds itself.
