TERRA NOVA® has some of the best improvements in this genus seen to date. Verbascum were once tall, lanky, sparsely flowered, and anemically colored. Our clones are compact, supremely branched, floriferous, vigorous, and have flowers that are larger, with more color and presentation. (All species are deer resistant too!) These hybrids are sterile, which keeps them blooming and blooming. Shearing the old stalks to the new buds assures a neat plant. Good drainage is essential for best garden performance.
