Verbascum lychnitis (White Mullein) is a noxious weed in the northeastern U.S. but did not occur until recently in Colorado. The pictured plants were in the first population found in the state and were located near Bellvue, CO. Plant height is similar to Common Mullein, but flowers are white and in a much branched inflorescence. Leaves lack the dense pubescence found on Common Mullein. Verbascum lychnitis is a biennial.
