The common mullein is also known as Saint-Fiacre's herb.
This plant attracts pollinators and stands out with its long floral stem.
Sow on the surface at a depth of about 1/8 inch.
In the first year, you will have a low plant with felted leaves, and in the following year, there will be the yellow flower spike.
Note: This plant is invasive; cut and discard the stem after flowering to prevent spreading. Mullein seeds are toxic; do not consume.
