The leaves on this spectacular, silver-foliaged lamb's ear are at least twice as large as normal, but still soft and fuzzy (just like your picture of Elvis). Giant lamb's ear is also much more heat- and humidity-resistant. S. 'Countess Helene Von Stein' is supposedly non-flowering, but we have seen two flower stalks in 13 years...does close count in lamb's ears? "The Countess" is great to brighten a dark spot in the garden, or plant one near the outhouse for those unexpected emergencies.
