8 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Verbascum densiflorum) Mullein is well-adapted to cottage, gravel, and rock gardens. In its function as a pioneer plant, it loves to protect and cover disturbed soil. The first year, this biennial will create a short basal rosette of thick, soft, pale-green leaves that are sometimes called “cowboy toilet paper” or “flannel leaf”. The second year it will send up a tall stalk of abundant dense flowers unique to this V. densiflorum variety of mullein. The first year leaves have been traditionally used dried as an infusion for lung issues, and the second year flowers for ear aches.

What are the pros? Unknown

What are the cons? Potential to invade

Review:

Its important to note the different species of Verbascum when talking about noxious and invasive weeds. Verbascum thapsus is a listed noxious and invasive species in many states, however this is V. densiflorum, which according to the USDA is introduced only in a few states (although the PLANTS database doe not say whether a plant is invasive or noxious, only introduced vs. native). Working in the natural resource and conservation field I have seen just how much of a problem these plants are to our native plant communities and ecosystems as a whole. Given the fact that V. thapsus and V. blatteria have both been problematic, I would have to advise against growing any Verbascum species, whether CURRENTLY listed or not.

What are the pros? Medicinal properties

What are the cons? none

Review:

Those who call this invasive should be gathering it up and using it for a multitude of ailments. The ignorant are the first to dismiss natural medicines and run for the doctor and poisonous vaccines. God gave us a medicine chest but the world would rather ingest poison. Shame on us.

What are the pros? hard to find elsewhere

What are the cons? limit self sowing

Review:

I understand that this can be invasive in certain situations, however this is an important plant in the practice of permaculture and we have responsibly introduced many such species to our garden with good results. Gardeners should always introduce new species with caution and care. There are no bad plants, just bad conditions.
