Question re Mullein

12 years ago

Hello,

I need some info on common mullein (Verbascum thapsus). I have been taking a medicinal herbs class this fall, and I had an opportunity to try some mullein leaves for a cold and chest congestion. Discovered that it is a very effective remedy.

I went out looking to gather some but I discovered that presently around here it has all dried up and turned brown. So I decided to collect some seeds and grow some in my back yard next spring.

I broke open some of the dried pods on the long spike at the top, but I didn't find any seeds, just some grainy dust about the size of table salt. Where are the seeds and what do they look like?

Any info would be appreciated.

Rick
