An Interesting Saturday Hike
Monday evening: There is a great patch of Mullein along the railroad tracks above the Berry Creek undercrossing. All growth stages are represented. Mullein is a bienniel. The photo below is what the plant looks like in its first year. Just basal leaves. Sometimes they flatten out a bit, and they can rise and fall a bit during each day, but they do not grow a tall stem. They wilt and turn brown in the fall, but the root stays alive.
