Tall and imposing, this wildflower has become gentrified. Many hybrid forms have been selected with large saucer-shaped flowers and showy stamens. Some have soft woolly leaves. Small sorts do well in rock gardens and troughs, but taller varieties show off well in perennial or mixed borders, and among shrub plantings. They tolerate most soils well, but not wet feet. Cut back after the first flush of bloom for later spikes to develop.
In sun, the flat flowerheads of Gold Plate yarrow are deep yellow and contrast well in form with Silver Candelabra mullein's 6-foot-tall spikes of yellow flowers.Miscanthus
Where space is not an issue, the large mound of slender white-striped leaves of Morning Light miscanthus partners well with massed mullein spires.Daylily
Blooming at the same time, yellow, or red cultivars of daylily provide color and bulk against the slender mulleins.
