Description:

Common Mullein (Verbascum thapsus )

 

Native to Europe and Asia, this plant has been considered an ecological threat because of its rapid growth which can overtake native plants. Common Mullein is also known as Wooly Mullein because of its velvet-like petals. The stalks can grow up to 10 feet tall that produce a yellow flower. When over crowded by other grasses, the plant will die and leave behind a dried stalk, which you can see birds resting on most times.
