The purple one looks like a variety of salvia ?sclarea. Orange one, yes, verbascum.
I'm pretty sure Salvias are herbacous perennials, not too show about verbascum but I would say that is too
Yes. Both are perennials, although Verbascum can be short lived in some gardens.
Yes agree salvia and verbascum. I have a card somewhere with variety name as mine is identical to yours and I have a blue, white and purple let me know if you need me to dig it out.
Will take a photo of label for you tomorrow.
