lordy-lou asked: oh god foxgloves is totally wrong, my bad--that's my regional name for the plant, although there is an actual foxglove plant. softness makes it seem like lamb's ear, but the shape is wrong. it may be a type of artemisia, since it's lobed and the artemisia often has little hairs on it. sorry i can't help more.
actually I think you’re right, I’ve heard of them referred to as an animal type name. Thanks!
