Lambs-Ears or Stachys byzantina is a cute plant that most of you will already be familiar with. It has silver furry foliage and is widely grown in gardens. I took these photos on 08 December 2020 in the Dunedin Botanic Gardens. It was flowering and being visited by bumblebees. New Zealand.

I like the form of the flower heads.
They cover an extensive bank area that’s behind a large rock retaining wall, in the Mediterranean Garden.
I’ve previously posted photos of this area, taken Christmas Day 2019. It was extremely busy with visiting bumblebees that day!
