Seed came from a trade. The species is almost certainly misnamed, since there are no online references for this Verbascum. I'll try to get a proper name for this once I have full-grown plants.
||Germinate at room temperature with exposure to light.
Flowers first year from seed sown indoors early.
detailed seed-starting info below
Update in August: the plants are now flowering, on spikes filled with buttery yellow flowers. They look not unlike the V. nigrum we grew some years ago.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
