Vivaciously Blooming Verbascum Sugar Plum

  • Plum Colored Bloom Spikes
  • Summer Reblooming
  • Pollinator Friendly
  • Deer and Drought Tolerant

Abundant, early Spring flowers top the dwarf reblooming perennial, Sugar Plum Verbascum (Verbascum 'Sugar Plum'). Also known as Sugar Plum "Mullein," large, plum colored blooms cover numerous spikes protruding above the compact, yet lovely, green foliage.

Reaching a height of just 15 inches, the Sugar Plum packs a big punch in a small package. The clear plum flowers emerge early in the season, and while each individual flower does not last a long time, the numerous flowers it produces continue its fresh bloom appearance over a long period.

The bloom period can be prolonged all the way to the end of Summer by deadheading the spent flowers, before they set seed.

Verbascum Sugar Plum prefers full sun and well-drained soils for best results. It's frost and drought tolerant once established.

Pollinators like hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies will flock to your Sugar Plums, just like your plant-loving neighbors will do when they see the blooms! Deer generally do not bother with the plant.

The Sugar Plum is perfect for small gardens for sunny borders. Try them in containers around your patio, or even in your gravel or rock garden. They make lovely cut flowers for a home bouquet!

If you're looking for a petite, reblooming perennial, give the Verbascum Sugar Plum a try today!
