Answer: Stachys byzantina, or Lamb's Ears, are rarely bother by insect pests because of their hairy leaves. Slugs and snails can sometimes attack the plants but they generally hide rather than nest in the plants and they lay their clutches of eggs in the soil, not on the undersides of the leaves. I'm really stumped on this one! How about digging up one of the affected plants and taking it to your local cooperative extension office for diagnosis? Helpful folks there can determine just who or what is causing the symptoms. Contact Sumter County Extension, 7620 State Road 471, Suite 2 Bushnell, FL 33513-8716, Phone: (352) 793-2728.
