Verbascum daze

Verbascums really carry the weight this time of year. Sorry I’ve lost track of the species/cultivars. (Yellow ones might by V. olympicum?) They just reseed nicely (well, you’ve got to be a little brutal on the seedlings) every year.

  1. So glad you found your way back to the computer. Wonderful terrace sans the maple. The mulleins bloomed here early and petered out early. I was hoping for a much longer show from them. Yours are wonderful, the thistle too.

  2. Wow Craig, the space is wonderful with all those tall babies surrounding it. Makes a nice sunny sitting spot.

  3. What do you mean about being brutal on the seedlings? Simple neglect (I’m good at that!) or something a little more involved?

    I love the silvery thistle foliage, but the verbascums are my favorites in this post, btw. They’re just these gorgeous exclamation points around your garden. 🙂

  4. It must be hard to get any reading done on that patio with all those verbascums looking over your shoulder.

  5. Kim: What I mean about being brutal is taking a hoe to the seedlings that can carpet the ground if I don’t get around to deadheading. Even when I deadhead ruthlessly, I have the dozen or so plants you see scattered around. If I don’t deadhead, they cover every inch of open soil.

    Les and Lynn: You think I actually sit out there, except maybe to tie my shoes? Actually, it’s a little warm out there without the maple. It’s more of a spring and fall spot these days. Elly’s paint job on the chair really makes it though.

  6. Wow. Fabulous.
    My white one doesn’t reseed/come back anymore…and none with as many branches as yours have.
