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.

Our mullin is comparable to the following...
