Mullein, Common or Greek

Verbascum thapsus or Verbascum olympicum

Garden Care

Mullein is a stoic plant in a barren landscape and produces a ridiculous amount of seeds so be prepared.   It is a biennial plant that produces a basal rosette in year one and a 6-foot flowering stalk in its second year.  Drought tolerant, it is found growing in the desert canyons and on the mountain slopes in Nevada.  Not a fussy plant and fertilizer is not necessary.  I grow it on the edge of the garden where the water is more scarce and the seed doesn't propagate as well with the limited water.
