Mullein, also known as candlewick and flannelleaf, is   a weed   that   all   grazing   animals   avoid; only occasionally goats will eat its flowers and is omnipresent in Turkey . It originated in Central Anatolia and is represented there with 235 species and 120 bastard varieties. Around the edges of its distribution to all of Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia   the number of species declines. In Sweeden, there are only two, also in China , and on the Arabian Peninsula there are three to six. Mullein belongs to the figwort or snapdragon family (Scrophulariaceae).
