Description

One of the few truly perennial species of mullein, it has sulphur-yellow blossoms with purple and red filaments, which bloom profusely on long flower stalks in mid and late summer, above its rosettes of hairy, jagged-edged leaves which are semi-evergreen. These plants are well-adapted to cottage gardens, gravel, and rock gardens, or even naturalized areas. This is one of the better behaved Mulleins that may gently self-seed but rarely becomes a nuisance!

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
