 [url=Lamb's Ear (Stachys byzantina)]Dusty Miller (Senecio cineraria)[/url] and Lamb's Ear (Stachys byzantina) are similar looking plants with the same growing requirements - lots of sunshine, minimal watering. Both have a mounding growth habit and both have interesting leaf shapes and textures. Lamb's Ear has a more pronounced velvety feel when you touch the leaves. The foliage of Dusty Miller is also downy soft but there are different cultivars with interesting leaf shapes; Lamb's Ear leaves look - well, like a lamb's ear! Hope this answers your question!
