Mulleins (Verbascum) are hardy biennial or
perennial plants. Some species, such as Common
Mullein Verbascum thapsus, grow to a height of
2 metres. Flowering stems grow up from a basal
rosette of thick hairy leaves and the
five-petalled flowers are more regular in shape
than the typical flower of this family.
Common Mullein has an unbranched flowering stalk,
large flannel-textured leaves and yellow flowers.
