Common / Great Mullein

Great Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is just that: the soft, minty-green leaves are our favorite for teas. Also known as "Common Mullein," or "Nature's Toilet Paper," this species is quite prolific, both in terms of its breadth of habitat and leaf production. Incredibly easy to grow and pretty to look at.
