    Has anyone propagated Lambs Ear ( Stachys byzantina) by seed rather than cuttings ? I'm curious about the the success rate.

    Well i have been taking out lambs ear on a maintenance contract we have. They had been planted in quite a few beds in the estate and were starting to become nuisance due to self seeding. The beds were starting to get covered in it and even now 3 months after pulling them out the seeds are still popping up all over the place. Since then we have taken them out of our nursery and gave them away to people. so you should have no probs propogating them good luck.
