Verbascum, Christo's Yellow Lightning

A fabulous plant with a fabulous story.
A fabulous plant with a fabulous story. Named after a donkey called "Lightning" by the late great gardener Christopher Lloyd, who came across the old donkey along a rocky path in Turkey, loaded with these verbascum stems. Tall upright spikes, packed with cool yellow blooms, emerge from low mounds of clean green foliage. A more vigorous, stately verbascum for the tall border.
