Bred and selected by the National Collection holders of Verbascum; Vic Johnstone and Claire Wilson. V. ‘Clementine’ was first launched at the Hampton Court Flower Show in 2003. An elegant and architectural perennial which is said to be more reliably perennial than many other Varbascums. The brightly coloured flowers are held on well branching stems and it makes a great addition to a mixed or herbaceous border. It will perform best in well-drained neutral or alkaline soil in sun or dappled shade.

  • Garden care: Cut old flowering stems to ground level throughout the season to promote further flushes of flowers. Cut off dead or dying foliage from basal rosettes to allow good air circulation.
