I started to remove a few dead leaves from my Lamb's Ear plant only to find a LOT of dead leaves at the bottom of the plant (underneath all the pretty growth) and rolly polly bugs all over those leaves. Should I go ahead & remove the all those dead leaves or just leave them for the bugs? Doesn't seem to affect the rest of the plant; it just keeps growing & growing, plus one plant now has shoots coming up and tiny flowers beginning to bloom on the shoots.

Would appreciate your suggestions.

Mabeljj, I would leave those lower leaves where they are at. They decompose slowly and act as a great ground cover beneath all those floppy stems you have, or will have eventually. If you feel it is just getting a little sloppy looking, then by all means, remove what will make you feel better about its attractiveness. Lambs ears can easily be uprooted by trying to pull off all that lower material, so if you feel the need to try to tidy it up some, just beware of that.
