Mullein (Verbascum thapsus)

Mullein – Verbascum thapsus

Mullein – Verbascum thapsus is a statuesque biennial that has striking tall spires of bright yellow flowers with soft grey foliage. Also called ‘Great’ or ‘Woolly Mullein’.

It’s a great plant for wildlife – carder bees use the ‘fur’ on the leaves to build their nests, the flowers also attract bees and hoverflies.

Thrives best in a well drained light soil in full sun. Suitable to grow in the herbaceous border or in a gravel garden.

Medicinal. A tea made from the flowers is soothing to bronchial problems. Ancient torches were made from stems dipped in tallow.
