Ballota Pseudodictamnus at clients garden today #frost #waterdroplets . Very chilly start to the day here. Ballota is a good plant for a sunny dry bed.

Is it lamb's ears Melvyn? It looks like it, if it is my sister gave me a bit during the summer I've got it in the back garden as it gets full sun all day there

No its not lambs ear that's Stachys lanata. My photo is a ballota, it's a small sub shrub growing to around 2 ft high. They both do well in sunny position 😊😊@mich

I thought the leaves looked similar 😂 it's lovely, I'm picking out some new shrubs just now for the back garden so I'll watch out for it 👍
