Abstract: Seed bank behaviour of Verbascum austriacum Schott and V. lychnitis L., two native mulleins of Hungary, were studied in a burial experiment. Both species germinated in every year of the experiment. Following four years of burial 7% and 41% germination were observed, respectively. Considering reports on earlier investigations as well as the results of our studies it seems that long term seed viability and maintenance of persistent seed banks are characteristic of the genus Verbascum.
