Lovely Moth Mullein Pistils (Please see the inset images too!!)

Lovely Moth Mullein Pistils (Please see the inset images too!!)
6 pictures above in notes! :)

Last year I was working on a project called, "The Flowers of Spring & Summer", where I attempted to take pictures of every species of flower that grows on our property. I finally had to abandon this when I started my 365 Project, but I learned so much about what grows here! I'll be continuing with it after I complete my 365! :)

This is a close-up of a Moth Mullein, which was the 158th flower of my project. I am crazy about the pistils of this flower which are so dramatic next to their fairly plain petals. Last year I took an extensive series of pictures, so I'm going to share just a couple from today and if you take a look in the picture above, you'll see many clickable inset images! ENJOY!

Here is information I wrote about this flower last year:
Part of Moth Mullen's latin name is "Verbascum" which appropriately means "beard", and though this flower is closed at night, thus not attracting moths, their stamens suggest the shape of a moth's antennae. These flowers are native to Eurasia and North Africa and considered an invasive weed in the United States and Canada.

If you would like to know more about this flower, Wiki has a page here: Wiki: Moth Mullein (Verbascum blattaria)
