Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A well-known tall, stout weed, Verbascum Thapsus, with a long dense woolly raceme of yellow flowers, and thick, densely woolly leaves; also, any plant of the genus Verbascum. An infusion of the leaves of the common mullen is used in domestic practice for catarrh and dysentery; while the name bullock's or cow's lungwort indicates another medical application. (For other uses, see
fish-poisonand hag-taper.) This plant has received numerous fanciful names, as Adam's flannel, blanket-leaf, feltwort flannel-flower, hare's beard, ice-leaf, Jupiter's-staff. The moth-mullen is V. Blattaria, a less stout plant, with the flowers yellow, or white tinged with purple. The white mullen is V. Lychnitis. These species are fully, or the lust sparingly, naturalized in the United states from Europe.
