Verbascum nigrum

Starting to set seed now, this is a lovely, slender biennial in amongst the round-headed agapanthus. Sets a lot of seed, selfseeds vigourously.

The one below is probably V. nigrum "Album".


  1. Oh, what a sight! To the Caribou Cawfee thankfully.
    Another world from here, I feel my coat sliding off.

  2. Were it anyone but you, I would yell "foul, salt in our frozen wounds!" They are lovely and a fresh breath of spring.
