Key Points
Full Product Details

Product Information

Verbascum ‘Dark Eyes’ is a compact grower with delightful custard yellow spires. The vibrant shade of the blooms are offset by contrasting maroon eyes to complete the sophisticated look of this showy border perennial.

This is a top-notch option for filling out the front of borders and patio pots, where vertical accents are particularly appreciated.

Distinctive stems make these hardy flowers great for cutting, allowing for natural colour to be brought inside and enjoyed for even longer, while also looking outstanding in summertime bouquets. Make sure to plant plenty to share with your loved ones!

What’s more, these delightful little blooms, which only grow up to 30cm tall, are very attractive to pollinating insects, transforming any garden into a haven for wildlife in no time at all.

Supplied as three plugs, ready to grow on before planting out.

Top Tips

Deadhead when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.

Care Information

  • Unpack plugs immediately, and stand them in water for an hour. If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini
  • Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post but they’ll quickly recover. Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as on a windowsill or in a greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs with care. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming
  • Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
