Description :

Verbascum thapsus (great mullein or common mullein) is a hairy biennial plant that can grow to 5ft tall or more.  It is a common weedy plant that spreads by prolifically producing seeds, but it rarely becomes aggressively invasive, since its seeds require open ground to germinate.  It is widely used for herbal remedies, with well-established emollient and astringent properties. The plant has also been used to make dyes and torches.
