My daily picture – Lamb's-ear plant( Stachys byzantina)

In a comment on my previous post, The ant on top of Lamb’s-ear plants, our friend Ghostwriter wondered if the lambs ear is a plant.  To eliminate any uncertainty I decided to give her the answer by publishing some photos of this flower!

“Lamb’s-ear plants are perennial herbs usually densely covered with gray or silver-white, silky-lanate hairs. They are named lamb’s ears because of the leaves’ curved shape and white, soft, fur-like hair coating. The leaves are thick and somewhat wrinkled, densely covered on both sides with gray-silver colored, silky-lanate hairs; the undersides are more silver-white in color than the top surfaces.[source]
