Today I was out collecting flat rocks for my Rock garden and the creek near my house had this growing al over the place. Anyone have any idea what it is.. the leaves are very fuzzy and soft.

Is it easy to grow & does it flower... I really thought it was neat looking. Hubby thinks I totally lost it.

If it is like the ones we have here, it will have yellow flowers up and down a spike that will dry later on and be full of seeds. Most of them don't grow though. It makes a great dried flower that can be varnished, or painted. Dries very hard. I personally like this plant even tho it is considered a weed here. Gets about 4-5 ft. tall. Well, the spike does.

I posted about it last year. I haven't found it to be invasive so far. It does come up in places where it wasn't planted.
