Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta'

Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta' - A Striking and Elegant Perennial Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta', commonly known as Purple Mullein, is a striking and elegant perennial that adds a splash of deep violet-purple to the garden with its tall flower spikes. Perfect for borders, cottage gardens, and wildlife gardens, 'Violetta' brings both beauty and a touch of sophistication to various garden settings. The standout feature of Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta' is its tall flower spikes adorned with deep violet-purple blooms. These flowers create a stunning display from late spring to summer, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies. The flowers rise above the green, lance-shaped foliage, adding height and a burst of rich colour to the garden. The upright growth habit makes 'Violetta' an excellent choice for adding vertical interest and a focal point in garden beds and borders. Caring for Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta' is straightforward, making it suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. Plant Purple Mullein in well-drained, moderately fertile soil and ensure it receives plenty of sunlight, though it can also thrive in partial shade. Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods. To encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance, deadhead spent flowers regularly. In late autumn, cut back the stems to ground level to prepare the plant for winter. With its low maintenance needs and stunning violet-purple flowers, Verbascum phoeniceum 'Violetta' is a wonderful addition to any garden, providing long-lasting colour and attracting beneficial pollinators.
