You tell a very familiar story.

Diane M. Schuller

I know just what you mean about sometimes not being able to leave without making that irresistable purchase!



I am the same I always regret it if I didn't buy the plant. I don't know why I am doing this to myself! Verbascums are stately plants.


The verbascum is lovely. We planted 2 last year but did not have much hope of them returning--they don't like wet feet and this is the PNW. But they did return and were blooming beautifully. After this past week of rain and yesterday's 20 mph winds, they're just bare stems! Thanks for stopping by our blog and leaving a comment on our Cuban oregano post.


For some reason I LOVE verbascums! They have such beautiful dusty colors and pretty blooms. I get one every year but they don't seem to make it past the season.


Thanks for reaffirming I'm not alone with my addiction Deb, Diane and Trudi! There's always a new and beautiful plant to be had, isn't there?!


Hi Curmudgeon! How surprising they came back ~ I wouldn't have thought that either since they are supposed to like heat and be drought tolerant. I guess that goes to show you really should try a plant because you just never know...


What a bummer yours don't come back Sheila. I'll have to visit your blog and see where you're located (not that I'm any expert, just curious!) Maybe one year, they'll surprise you?
