    I live in Florida zone 9a and mullein grows wild everywhere along the roads. The road dept mows it down as a weed and it can get oversprayed with insecticides. I want to plant some in my garden but several transplants have failed. These pictures are similar to our variety but our leaves don’t get as big. They get as tall but not as fat. The leaves are similar but dark and gator skin cracks. I’m sure it is mullein but would like to try your seeds so I can have a ready supply regardless of the road dept. Do you have another source for out type down here? If I can get it to grow would you like some seeds? I will order seeds once you think they will do ok. Thanks, Mary

      Hi Mary,
      I think you can grow the common mullein in FL. It is really the best kind for the purposes you seem to have in mind.
