I first discovered Lamb's Ear (Stachys byzantina) at a local public garden, and when my mother started a herb garden, she planted some Lamb's Ear for me. So it has long been one of my favorite plants, and of course it was one of the first plants I put in my own garden.

However, Lamb's Ear is not the only fun and furry plant out there. At the recent Master Gardener plant sale, I discovered this treasure. According to the donor, it's a type of Salvia. It looks like a little "Audrey 2" from Little Shop of Horrors, but this monster plant is soft and cuddly.
I also found this furry plant at Home Depot, but I forgot the name. Can anyone help? I'll try to find the tag and update this post later.
