Lamb’s-ears (Stachys Byzantina) 80 seeds (#2186)
Lamb’s-Ears are one of the most popular silver-leaved perennials, used widely for edging along pathways and borders.
Plants form a dense clump of soft, felty silver grey leaves. Upright spikes of magenta-pink flowers form in early summer, but these should be clipped off to maintain a tight, compact habit. Clumps are easily divided in spring or early fall. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
Drought tolerant once established.
