Description

Lamb's-ear is a commonly grown plant for children's gardens, as it is easy to grow and the thick felt-like leaves are fun to touch. They are named lamb's ears because of the leaves curved shape and white, soft, fur-like hair coating. Lamb's-ear plants are perennials, usually densely covered with gray or silver-white hairs. The leaves are thick and somewhat wrinkled, densely covered on both sides with gray-silver colored, silky hairs. Flowering stems are erect and often branched, producing pink flowers which contrast nicely with the silver-gray foliage. The flowering spikes are 10–22 cm long, each have many flowers and are crowded together over most of the length on the stem. Lamb's Ears are drought tolerant, and easy to grow even in poor soils. Grow in a sunny location.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 4-8

Height: 60-75cm, 24-30"

Location: Sun

Seeds per pack: 20 (previously 10)

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is generally within 60 days after the warming period, though they could take a few months. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
