Verbascums

Verbascums, also known by the common name Mulleins are a genus of plants containing mainly biennials and herbaceous perennials although there are a few annuals and subshrubs in the genus.

They come in a variety of colours for your garden and their long, slender form can add height and structure to a border. They're also renowned for long flowering periods, even in dry soils.

On this page you'll find thoughts, advice and photos all from real gardens and gardeners who are part of the Grows on You community.
