Verbascum Honey Dijon (Verbascum x Honey Dijon’)

Verbascum Honey Dijon

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

Abundant, early Spring flowers top the dwarf reblooming perennial, Honey Dijon Verbascum (Verbascum ‘Honey Dijon’). Also known as Honey Dijon “Mullein,” large, peach and gold colored blooms, with plum eyes, 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 peach and gold shaded 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 Honey Dijon prefers full sun and well-drained soils for best results. It’s frost and drought tolerant once established.

Pollinators like hummingbirds, butterflies, and beneficial pollinators will flock to your Honey Dijon Verbascum, just like your plant-loving neighbors will do when they see the blooms! Deer generally do not bother with the plant.

The Honey Dijon Verbascum is perfect for small gardens or 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!
