I planned on talking a bit about Lamb's Ears today. When I lived in CA, I had some LE plants, but had no idea until I moved to AZ that they flowered! Obviously, they love it here. I called them rabbit ears back then.
Rabbit ears, lamb's ears, whatever. I just love them. They are so velvet-y, and delicate looking, but from what I read about them, they are not so delicate as they seem, and can be quite invasive.
During the winter I let them be covered with fallen leaves from the peach tree that resides beside it. Actually, I let everything keep a layer of peach leaves around the bottom of the plants for protection. Always a little apprehensive about clearing those leaves out in the spring. Who knows what has taken up residence in there all winter!
Also while looking around online about Lamb's Ears, I found this website that talks about using the leaves in crafts. Who knew?
