Moth mullein is a lovely garden plant, with tall spikes that carry pretty white flowers. The flowers have an attractive dark purple ‘eye’ and the spikes can be 1-1.5m tall, so ideal for a sunny cottage garden border. It is a biennial, however self seeds well, to give continuing flowers on different plants year after year, producing a lovely display.
The beautiful flowers of the Moth mullein attract pollinators and bees in particular.
Moth mullein is happy in poor soils, and can flower from June through to the Autumn.
