Verbascum chaixii (Vebascum chaixii)

Six flower spikes on the plant this year. I've been removing Mullen Moth caterpillars from it. Now gone there don't seem to be any more hatching. Pretty coloured caterpillars with yellow and green striped bodies.

Lovely blooms. I have tried growing the giant variety but I don't think it is free draining enough here. Bit damp!!

Thank you 3pb. I'm surprised some people find this doesn't do, if anything it's a nuisance trying to keep to just this one plant, that's enough it has wide ranging roots. This particular plant has been in this position 6 or 7 years.

It's done really well to last so long I have one not yet flowered the last one I had was a peach colour.
