Very nice, love the rose campion with the foxglove. Is that mullein in the 2nd picture? How tall was that when it bloomed?

Absolutely beautiful! Did the rose campion bloom at all the first year? They will be worth the wait (and practically free!) Linda

Very nice pictures, Tom! Love the Verbascum! Can anyone tell me-are verbascum/mullein perennials or biennials?

So glad you posted these pics. I am growing Verbascum Milkshke this year (got the seeds in a trade) and I have great germination. It's good to know it's height. I am also growing 3 types of Rose campion - fuschia, white, and angel's blush so they should should be beautiful together. I am told they are biennials and will bloom the second year, but the fuschia and white are such great re-seeders you will probably never be without them. Nice photos.
