Pussytoes, if I remember correctly, that I grew from seed. . .




One of the very few honey bees I’ve seen in the yard, on an obedient plant. . .

Hi Michelle. Your Pussytoes are Lamb's Ears, Stachys byzantian or lanata. I started some from seed myself years ago. Enjoyed seeing your photos.

They do look similar, don't they? :) What I planted isn't lamb's ear, Stachys byzantina. I'm pretty sure this is antennaria dimorpha, which is one of several native seed types I bought from Garden in the Woods last winter. My labels faded, and I was afraid I had it mixed up with another seed type that I started in the same flat, but the foliage looks like pussytoes now.

I guess I was confusing the pussy toes with rabbit foot clover - maybe I had pussy willow on the mind, which looks like rabbit foot!! Oh well, the brain does get more fuzzy these days:) LOL
