Verbascum epixanthinum is a variable species, presumably endemic to the Greek mountains. It was described from Taigetos and occurs northwards to Pieria and N Pindos. The inflorescence is simple or sparingly branched and densely glandular, with clustered flowers and violet filament wool. Verbascum is a taxonomically difficult genus with c. 75 species in Greece and at least twice as many in Turkey. The excellent monograph by Murbeck (1925, 1933) is now outdated, and the genus is in need of modern revision.
