      i just became interested in this plant. does someone have a few seeds to send me to experiment putting in a pot? living in colorado, i wouldn't expect this to ever be an outside plant, so why shouldn't i plant it now inside?

      Did you know that it also makes a great tea? Steep the crushed leaves in hot water and it creates a warm and yummy hot drink. In the olden days women would use these leaves to reduce menstrual cramps!

      I was thinking of trying this in my yard, I live in NY. You said you are always ripping it out, will it take over a garden or should it be planted in an area by itself?

      i'm almost positive that walmart and home depot sell this plant as a seedling.

      so there seems to be atleast 3 different types - Lambs Ear is about 4" and flowers, Silver Carpet doesn't flower, and Big Ears gets to be 12". I haven't read any differences as far as medicinal properties. They may attract slugs and caterpillars.
