Lovely Mullein - Garden Photo of the Day

NY Botanical Garden Groundbreakers photo by Ivo Vermeuelen
“A weed is a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.” 
-   Ralph Waldo Emerson 

The long-maligned Mullein (Verbascum bombyciferum) is considered a weed by some but here its wooly, whitish leaves, rising four feet high, show off its yellow flowers amidst a glorious flower display at NY Botanical Garden's GROUNDBREAKERS display...
It is NYBG's homage to the great Beatrix Farrand, landscape designer of the Eyrie and Dumbarton Oaks.
