Tell me this is not ........

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

Sure looks like common mullein. Though it is hard to believe that you could have overlooked it last year.

Thanks John,
Yes, that is why it's hard for me to believe it's a common mullin...no way could I have not noticed the huge rosette of large leaves that is normal for our mullin. Well maybe I just discovered a miniture... LOL!
Our mullin is comparable to the following...
