Propagation: By seed, germination 10 days, self-sows freely.
Nature of Plant: Great Mullein-sturdy, erect stalk from 7 to 8 feet high with huge velvety leaves from 16 to 18 inches long in a big rosette at the foot but much smaller leaves on stalk; flower spikes thick with small, golden yellow flowers; when dried and dipped in oil, stalks burn like tapers; it is too coarse and large for a small flower garden but of interest in a large gray garden.
Moth Mullein - leaves about 2 inches long, flowers 3/4 inch across, yellow with lilac-colored centers, on short stems or pedicels appear to be clinging to the 18-inch stalk; decorative for gardens and good for height in flower arrangements.
