    • Size - 3' high by 1' wide

    • Characteristics - The first year mulleins form a rosette of woolly green leaves that may be 6 to 15 inches long. The second year they send up showy flower spikes that are about 3 feet tall as the plant needs at least one overwinter to bloom.
    • Special Features - Mullien's showy flowers make it more of an accent plant in borders, rock gardens and naturalized areas. Most varieties flower over a long period with new flowers opening frequently. Mullien can be considered a weed as it is very prolific ~ so cut off the flower stalks after bloom if you don't want more mullien!
    • Germination - Seeds need open ground to germinate if you let the plant self-sow.  Baby mulleins are easy to transplant so starting seeds indoors to get a jump start on spring is a fun way to add color and height to your gardens.
