Mullien I found this growing on the east side of our home. The leaves are like velvet and I knew it was something very special. I took these 3 pictures and sent them to davesgarden website. It is apparently a really good medicinal herb. http://naturalhealthtechniques.com/herb-mullien/ Ask-a-Dave's-Gardener: Can anyone Id this plant? Verbascum thapsus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia @Motomom34 one of the uses is eczema. My SIL put it out on facebook and got several replies. She called me and named off umpteen uses.
