Verbascum sp.
‘Cotswold King’

Haha – the cartoonish “faces” on this wonderfully rewarding Verbascum look just like “Yosemite Sam!” And you should definitely try this extra large flowered, sweetly scented variety not only for the chuckles but also because they are so simple to grow and the quickest to bloom. To 5’ tall, those 2” bright lemon yellow flowers stud the upper 30” of the upright spikes late Spring, bringing a sunny, uplifting impact to the garden. Plus, it easily self-sows so you’ll get lots of future freebies! Cut back after bloom is spent,  for  secondary spikes in Mid-Summer. Snail proof & deer resistant. Showiest in rich soil. Attracts butterflies & bees.
