Verbascum thapsus


Called Common Mullein, it took me years to get one established here at the farm. I would see them all over and think “Why don’t you want to live here?” What do you need? It turns out Mullein doesn’t need much! I was probably over watering and over pampering. They prefer clay and disturbed soils over rich composted beds. Once I started the seeds, planted a dried out and almost dead start, I finally got them to grow here. I love the tiny blooms with a bit of orange in the center. The tall spike of flowers and the soft fuzzy leaves are a treat for all of your senses. Mullein will self sow. Start seeds in early Spring and transplant out when you have four to six fuzzy leaves.
