Verbascum phoenicium rosetta
This self seeding rose pink strain benefits from cutting back to produce further flowering. Its compact habit is ideally suited to smaller gardens or middle of the border.
Dead head throughout the Summer. Cut back dead flower stems in Autumn to the base of the stem . If you leave the stems on in winter then the plant will self seed but also could be a part of an Autumn structural garden that insects could use to hibernate in.
