Verbascum splendidum

Verbascum splendidum

The day one time SBS garden presenter Costa visited Lambley the temperature hit 44C. One plant which astonished him and which his crew filmed was this Verbascum. A Turkish endemic, in its first year V. splendidum makes an enormous silver-white rosette, some 150cm across. The next season it produces a thick, 2 metre tall, branching trunk, with silver-white leaves clasping it, and a profusion of soft lemon flowers for months and months. Exhausted by the effort it dies after setting seed.
