Native to Europe but now grown in the Americas, Australia, Asia, Mexico and Northern Africa, Verbascum thapsus is a species of biennial mullein that can grow at least 2 meters tall with small yellow flowers which are grouped on a tall stem. It is considered a common weed which spreads prolifically though not aggressively. Historically the plant was used to make dyes and torches. Native Americans used to smoke the leaves to promote lung health, and the Zuni people would apply a paste made out of the powdered root to any skin disruption or sore.
