Touch a Lamb's ear and you'll never be the same...

Pin It

If you have never touched a lambsear, you are missing out on one of life's simple pleasures.  
The leaves are covered in tiny little hairs, and apparently true lambs ears are quite rough, but the plant is lovely.
Super soft, calming little leaves that are in the shape of little baby sheep ears.

lovely, lovely, lovely

You know what the best part is?
They grow like weeds.  

Write literally, they are actually considered weeds sometimes.  I happily welcome these weeds to my garden, though.  In fact, when I find them growing "wild" in my yard, I dig them up and give them a new home in my formal beds.  They have a silver tint to them and grow low to the ground in mats, so they are a perfect border plant to set off your big bloomers.(as in your roses, not your laundry on the line...)

Go buy one plant...they are cheap now!  You can divide it over and over again...
OR you could just buy a bunch up front, but that would be silly now, wouldn't it?

I admire that you know so much about plants, Amy! I'm totally lost when it comes to that stuff. I'm thankful to have your help! This lamb's ear looks nice!

Whenever I see lambsear at a greenhouse I absolutely have to touch it. It's compulsive really.
