(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.
