Stachys byzantina - Lambs Ear
A wonderful evergreen perennial, mostly grown for its rich rosettes of showy, velvety, silvery tongue-shaped leaves. One of the toughest, low maintenance small perennials for our gardens. Upright spikes of magenta-pink flowers form in early summer which the bees adore. Dead head after flowering to encourage new stems and leaves. Drought tolerant once established. Grow in full sun or part shade.
Great plant for a border edging.
