(aka: Verbascum A1BLK-070) Verbascum chaixii 'Croatian Blood' is a seed strain of the perennial mullein from our 2012 expedition to Croatia, where we spotted it growing in an open rocky field of hellebores at 2,500' elevation, just past the town of Vrhovine. The parent plant had blood-red stems as well as color that seeped into the base of the leaves. The clumps of Verbascum chaixii 'Croatian Blood' are adorned with large, triangular, fuzzy, green leaves and topped in June (NC) with 42" tall, densely-branched spikes of small yellow flowers. Keep an eye out for seedlings, which may be too abundant in some rocky dryland climates.
