Herbal Spin Offs into the Ornimental World

I caught this plant blooming by the entrance to one of our lath house plant nurseries. A relative to Mullen, this Verbascum x hybrida ‘Southern Charm’ F1 Hybrid illustrates how some herbs are” tamed” to become strictly ornamental plants. The Thompson & Morgan seed catalog says this plant is ideal for cottage gardens and is a good cut flower.
