Grand Mullein

Amelia Hoskins / Plants / / 0 Comments

Mullein leaves make a light gold silk dye Plants take 2 years to produce the yellow flowers on tall spikes which are attractively bright.  The fury leaves were used historically to make slow burning torches.

I annoy my allotment neighbours allowing Grand Mullein to grow (up to 7 feet). they are frightened of the hundreds of thousands of seeds dispersal.  I've been told the seeds are narcotic and dangerous to fish, so I havn't used them.

Tulip Salmon Van Eijk

Salmon pink when closed.  Cerise-magenta centre when open.  Deep violet star shaped centre around violet stamens. Tulips follow the sun while open.

Salmon Pink tulips were early bloomers in 2021; all growing tall.  Pale salmon pink from the outside, but with dramatic navy-violet centres.
