Mullein, Dense-Flowerd (Organic)
Verbascum densiflorum. Biennial.
Beautiful and burly, Dense-Flowered mullein produces lots of easily harvestable pale yellow flowers and sage green leaves for medicinal use and is pretty enough to grow as an insectary / ornamental. Easy to grow. Mullein is said to have a soothing effect on a dry cough, and a tincture made from the flowers soothes the nerves. Some people add dried leaves to smoking blends. We wanted to add Verbascum thapsus to our catalog but then found out that it’s illegal to sell the seed. Somebody somewhere thinks it is a weed – crazy! Then we found this bigger legal cousin available from The Plant Good Seed Company in Ojai, California.
