Verbascum dumulosum

Verbascum dumulosum

Family scrophulariaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow

Low-growing perennial verbascum from Turkey. Forms elegant rosettes of felted leaves, with yellow flowers held closely above, without the stem common to most mulleins. Unfortunately, the plants I grew from society seed are not the real thing: leaves are felted but not packed into graceful rosettes, the flowers have purple stamens (which are common to many species, but apparently not to V. dumulosum), and appear on definite stalks. Oh well, I may continue to try for the real thing, even though its hardiness is doubtful.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
