Description: When in flower, Great Mullein's tall spike of flowers, reaching up to two metres in height, is pretty unmistakable. The yellow spike can be seen across England, Wales and southern Scotland in the summer; it is less common in northern and western Scotland and Ireland. In the wild, it grows on open scrubland, rough grassland and wasteland, and in hedgebanks.
Flowering time: June to September
Colour: Pale yellow
Management: Great Mullein flowers best in dry soils with low nutrient contents. The flowering stem should be cut down after flowering.
Kindly be aware that as autumn approaches, our wildflower plants might be delivered in a state where they appear to have passed their peak. We strive to inform you about this at the time of your order. It is common for native plants to exhibit leaf blotches or have dead/brown leaves during specific times of the year; this is entirely natural. We assure you that we meticulously inspect the root condition, ensuring their robust health. Once planted, the plug plant will respond accordingly.
Please understand that owing to the perishable nature of our plug plants, the usual right to cancel does not apply.
