The flower is a Woolly Mullein. The velvety leaves were used long ago to line moccasins & shoes to keep out the cold. A tea made from the leaves was used to treat colds. The leaves can soothe sunburn. The flowers & roots were used to treat ailments from earache to croup.

"One of my very favorites, the photos can't do this flower justice. The interior is amazing. I am moving a piece to a better location this year so it will hopefully be multiplied like my Toucan Tango, Divine & Best Bets have done!"
