Here’s my top five favorite plant list, at least for today. This is the season for garden tours in my area so I’m liable to come up with some brand new favorites each time I get to wander through someone else’s garden full of favorites. But for now, my list shapes up like this:
Lamb’s Ear (Stachys Lanata)
This plant is thought to be native to Turkey and considered a weed there. I love it in my garden for the wonderful silvery light green color of the foliage as well as the soft texture of the leaves. Most gardening directions say that it needs partial shade, but I’ve got it in all sorts of situations and it seems to do fine no matter where I put it.
