What is this fuzzy plant?


I'm still finding them growing around my yard years after the last one flowered

UPDATE: I wanted to get rid of the darn thing because it turned into something completely different other than the little cute fuzzy plant that it once was. Take a look at it now. It's over 40 inches tall and still growing! Now I won't get rid of it because I'm interested in seeing what it's turning into!

I'd watch out if I were you. "Day of the Triffids!" It could also be the killer plant from outer space in "Little Shop of Horrors!"

For the Love of Pete, Poofer, don't let it set seeds or you'll be seeing what your entire yard looks like with them. But otherwise, I like the idea of seeing what happens

Here is what it is and what it will turn into. You do not whant it to go to seed as already posted or it will be everywhere.

Common Mullien (also spelled Mullein) Latin: Verbascum thapsus

Holy KaMoleeee! Your first photo was on 4-05 of the nice looking little plant. Then you posted a photo just today (photo yesterday?) of something that does indeed look like an Alien Invader type thingy. I was going to comment on allowing honey bees to use this plant because I believe honey bees are very valuable for plant propagation. BUT--I now say- -Enough! Stop this foreign intruder!
Maybe next week you could climb it to get the Golden Egg or the Magic Harp.
It's your plant, do what you wish with it. David

Yup, tried to tell you
Just like some puppies they start out all cute & cuddly then they turn into a terror

Its been years since I let one grow & I still find plants growing every year
So somewhere in the woods I think they grow
...or the seeds last for years

After I saw the picture that Chris posted, I've decided that I rather like it. I think it's here to stay. I really am not worried about it spreading too much as I have all that lava rock in there, and that should keep any other growth at bay.

Chris,

How long will it take to get to the size of the plant in your picture?

Chris's pic is probably from one season of growth this is a rabid invasive annual. Your neighbors are gonna hate you......
