Mullein (Verbascum phoeniceum Flush of White) 100 seeds (#1526)

Numerous slender flower spikes smothered in small white blooms.
Wonderful for the border and as a crisp accent plant.
Can be treated as an annual.
Relatively unknown by gardeners, the Mullein is a worthwhile perennial, especially for hot sunny sites. Plants form a low, ground-hugging rosette of crinkly green leaves, bearing upright stems or spikes of flowers. Stems are tall and excellent for cutting.
Although not a long-lived perennial, these usually self-sow.
Most effective when planted in groups towards the middle of the border. Also interesting in tubs or mixed containers.
