I asked if it was a type of Lamb’s Ear (Stachys byzantina) when I first saw it. But nope, it’s a sage.
Those salvias are a wiley and diverse bunch.
yes, I also would guess that is lamb’s ear! fuzzy!
I love fun and interesting plants like this! I just looked it up and it grows in my zone, too. Now if I can only find it around here…
Who let the dog out? :-)
… phew – I was wondering why the shot of a someone’s head
the top of Anderson Cooper’s head … maybe
exactly what I thought, bre!
it still looks like a mop of gray hair to me. I can’t imagine how that could be a plant….?
Can you post another photo of the whole plant?
I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anything like it.
Yogita: I don’t have any wide shots right now (I only had my closeup lens…) but there are some online
This site is wonderful, just wonderful. I love the smell of sage, but never saw it silky like that. Will it grow in Arkansas & when? Also how are you featured on frontpage of myYahoo?

I have many different types of salvia in my gardens, but did you know that people smoke it too? My mother and I both love to garden and we were wondering what kind of this salvia is th kind that they smoke…? Don’t get confused, I am not talking about sativa that stuff if illegal!
Melody: I don’t know about smokable sage but I do know about ceremonial sage… the sage that is smudged. It’s white sage, Salvia apiana. Not hardy to my zone up North but I bring it indoors in the winter.
Sewya: I didn’t notice much smell on this sage. I believe it is hardy to zone 5.
