the felt-like fuzz on this lamb’s-ear makes it look like the photo is not in focus (it is). lamb’s ear is not native to our bioregion, but is naturalized and easy to identify along trialsides and roadsides. i never see people use this an an ornamental plant any more, but i love it’s symmetry and unexpected texture. I am thinking i may transplant some trailside plants into my garden next year and see how they do.
