Mullein is a hairy biennial plant. It is a common weedy plant that spreads by prolifically producing seeds. Its small yellow flowers are densely grouped on a tall stem, which grows from a large rosette of leaves. It also hosts many insects, some of which can be harmful to other plants. Although insects are easy to remove by hand yet their populations are difficult to eliminate permanently. It is widely used for herbal remedies, with well-established emollient and astringent properties. The plant has also been used to make dyes and torches.
