Plant Details

The rarely offered beautiful white flowered form of Verbascum nigrum. Blooms profusely in late spring and early summer, sometimes into late summer.

Verbascum nigrum is one of the most reliable and long-flowering varieties of mullein.

This European native can be found on dry, stony hillsides and open woodlands, but plants are well-adapted to cottage, gravel, and rock gardens, or naturalised areas. Verbascum nigrum album will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions but must have good drainage. 

Height: 90cm

Common name: Mullein

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
