Dark Mullein Plug Plants Verbascum nigrum
Common names include, black-rooted mullein, Aaron's rod, Our Lady's candle and tall mullein.
A native biennial which can be found in grassy banks, hedgerows and roadsides, dark mullein prefers to grow on calcareous soils. It can grow to 2 metres in height with a tall flower spike of yellow blooms and distinctive hairy grey-green leaves.
It is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects and is one of the RHS Plants for Pollinators.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
