Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification

Tuesday, August 4, 2009


Propagating Verbascum or Mullein is done in the spring by digging up the parent plant and dividing the crown into several well rooted stock. Mullein was a weed until it was hybridized since it was found in well drianed gravely soils in full sun. It is a short lived perennial, 2-3 years, that blooms most of the year, although it does go dormant in mid summer but comes back in late summer and blooms until fall, but deadheading will make the flowers flourish. The blooms attract butterflies but deer stay away. Colors range from yellow, to lavender to peach and the plant will grow to a height of 36".
