Verbascum chaixii
'Wedding Candles'

My favorite Verbascum has sprouted CANDELABRA! Growing 4-5’ tall, this new selection is even more of an attention grabber than V. chaixii ‘Album’! EASY, FAST, DROUGHT TOLERANT, and DEER RESISTANT, and it blooms continuously Spring thru Fall (as long as you cut back the spent spikes). You’ll love its pristine white flowers centered with fetching fuzzy purple stamens and bright orange anthers. So bridal-esque! Not fussy about soil but blooms more in rich soil and self sows reliably, creating an elegant vertical repeat pattern in the garden. Great habitat plant, too!
