The Q&A Archives: lambs ears

Question: My lambs ears have already bloomed. Should I dead head them. also there is a lot of dead around the bottom . Any advice on keeping them in good shape is appreciated. THANKS

Answer: You can cut back your lamb's ears to nearly ground level after they have finished blooming and they will sprout healthy new stems and leaves. I find that an annual shearing renews the plant, removes all the dead leaves, and makes them grow neat and compact. Best wishes with yours!
