Keego's Verbascum

Keego brought this verbascum to the Garden Get Together last September over the winter it looked a bit tatty but since it was planted out earlier in the year it's gone from strenght to strenght and now it's beginning to flower. Linda B sent seed of Snow Maiden only managed to germinate 2 plants but at Bill's Get Together Linda gave me a pot of seedlings so next year with luck I'll have white ones as well.

Greenway don't know if it grows that tall as it's new to me this year, Mary if it seeds that's fine I'll transplant looks quite striking with the grey silver foilage set off against the berberis

Three of these appeared in my garden last summer - they are just starting to flower - may have to be ruthless if they self-seed.
