Name that plant...

Post  GlassHen on 5/1/2011, 9:51 pm

I found two of these in my yard today next to the fence about 10 feet apart. They have really fuzzy leaves. I have no idea what it is. Is it something worth transplanting?







Next to my hand for size comparison...

Definitely mullein. It will remain just leaves if this is the first year of growth. The second year it grows a VERY tall stalk with yellow flowers. Around here it's a "ditch weed".

It is pretty and a healing herb and around here it grows on the sandy soil along the highway and meadows.

Look's like lamb's ear... found at this site and many others. I know it was for sale at one of the stores I was at recently.

This site says use it as toilet paper or smoke it. Just not both.
