Common Mullin....Normally biennial correct? I didn't have this last year..unless it was looking like a BES in the beginning. Usually in my area of Eastern WA, these first year plants look like HUGE attractive ornamental fuzzy cabbages with large leaves and then bolt year 2.

I posted this on the Name That Plant forum and got someone who also believed it looked like Mullin...is there a dwarf Mullin I'm not aware of? :)

Thanks,

Vera

Our mullin is comparable to the following...
