Verbascum - Phoeniceum Mixed
This mixture features stately flowers in white to pink and dusky carmine. It is a classic plant for mixed borders. This hardy perennial reaches the height of 90cm.
Sow indoors, from January to April, to flower the same year, 0.5cm deep, in trays of compost. A temperature of 15-20Â°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out into well-drained soil, from May to October, 40cm apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors, from April to July, to flower the following year, in a seed bed, 0.5cm deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm apart, before planting out to flowering position in autumn, spacing 40cm apart. Flowers from June to August.
