Plant of the Month : June 2019

Verbascum

During July spectacular bright yellow candelabras of Verbascum olympicum emerge. These can be seen to great effect punctuating the Grass Borders near the Camel Paddock. Commonly known as the Greek Mullein, it is a short lived perennial which has seeded itself around from the original specimens we planted over 18 years ago. Caterpillars can disfigure the leaves, and we rely on our local bird population to keep this damage to a minimum.
