I 've got seeds from a very wellI experienced rockery gardner and I 've sown these seeds (at 20 C) in 2004. Like most verbascums they 'll bloom in their second year. So I 'm not sure what I 'll get and if they 'll come back true from seeds. This verbascum is a probably a hybrid between V. dumulosum and V. spinosum. Looking after one of the parents is fine for me too. I 'll keep you updated.
