Southern Charm is a sterile verbascum; it will not self-sow. I wintersowed it and my plants are now in their sixth year. They bloom in three different shades -- pink, light lavender-purple, and a creamy copper. They bloom heavily in early spring and sparsely through summer. Often fall brings fresh flowers.
