Verbascum olympicum

Also known as "Greek Mullein". Hardy and low-maintenance, this Mullein variety thrives in full sun, tolerates various soils, and stands up to drought and deer. Beyond its ornamental charm, Olympic Mullein has a rich history in herbal medicine.

Biennial, that produces a rosette of basal leaves, and the following year a huge 3-6' spike ending in a candelabra of yellow blossoms. USDA Hardiness zones 3-8.

Each packet contains about 100 seeds.
