Jacob’s Staff a.k.a. Mullein
The Jacob’s Staff (Verbascum thapsus) that I had shown a while back is now dry with the seeds getting ready to scatter. It looks like a western desert cactus, if you squint hard.
Common names people have told me for this plant are Mullein, Jacob’s Staff, native toilet paper, cowboy toilet paper, indian tobacco and lambs ear – the last I think because the leaves are fuzzy and feel like a lambs ear.
The pastures are getting dry and the ponds are low. Time to have some rain.
