Verbascum thapsis SCROPHULARIACEAE
Native wildflower grows as a rosette of very woolly, gray-green leaves the first year, producing a tall spike of bright yellow 3/4" flowers in the second year. First year plants may be used as attractive houseplants. Dried flower stalks make an excellent drill for starting a fire by hand or with a bow. Medicinal: Mullein leaves and flowers have traditional medicinal use as a demulcent, emollient, astringent, and expectorant with an affinity for the respiratory system. Caution: The seeds are narcotic and poisonous if ingested in sufficient quantity.
