Mullein Verbascum dumulosum

Mullein I like the article

Exposure MulleinSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Mullein in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.The Mullein usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.

Generalities Mullein
The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development. This plant in the summer assumes a yellow colouring; it is large in size and can reach 30 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Mullein should be used for rock gardens,

Fertilization Mullein
In the spring let’s remember to fertilize our perennial plants, using a slow release granular fertilizer, to add in one solution every 3-4 months. If desired we can also use a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix with the irrigation water every 20-25 days.

Watering MulleinTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Treatments Mullein
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Mullein
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
