(Mullein) Verbascum ‘Dark Eyes’ is a dwarf Verbascum that displays pyramids of long blooming spikes of soft yellow flowers with a bold red eye. The soft leaves are silvery-green and form a tight rosette. Verbasum ‘Dark Eyes’ has a very compact habit that makes it a good choice as a ground cover. It grows best in well drained soil. Verbascum ‘Dark Eyes’ is a long lasting biennial that will shine in your garden for years. A biennial will self seed to continue the growing process.
