  • Lamb’s Ears (Stachys byzantina)

    Wool-covered leaves delight children and make a decorative accent all year, so these are popular garden plants. But the purple flowers produce a good crop of small seeds that wash downhill easily, so patches of Lamb’s Ears often pop up in the city where no one has planted them. These were photographed June 8 in Beechview.

    For a fuller description, see the Stachys byzantina reference page.
