Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) has been valued for its therapeutic benefits for many years. Although it originally came from Europe and Asia, it is now also seen growing naturally in North America. The mullein plant's broad, smooth, velvety leaves are distinctive due to their fine layer of fuzz and tall, erect stem.
Its leaves, petals, and roots have long been used to treat several respiratory issues, such as coughs, asthma, and bronchitis. It is also believed to possess anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving qualities. It is still widely used in herbal medicine today and is a favorite among gardeners wishing to add a distinctive and eye-catching plant to their landscapes.
