An Aquired Taste
When I first discovered Lamb's Ears (stachys byzantina) I fell in love with its soft bluish gray color, soft fuzzy leaves and easy disposition. I just didn't like the flowers. I would go crazy trying to keep them all cut off, much like other plants that are grown mainly for their foliage. Eventually though, mother nature prevailed and there were more blooms than I could keep on top of so I just let them go and amazingly enough, I actually started appreciating their subtle beauty. And the bees love them too!
