    Stachys, a lovely plant common name Lambs Tail, the bees do love it, we have a few dotted around the garden.

    Thanks all. Will it grow from a root cutting? I know the person whose house its growing at so will ask nicely if I can take a piece of it.

    My wife tells me I am wrong they are Lambs ears, not Lambs tails.
