Stachys byzantina
'Helen Von Stein'
Lamb's Ear

Stachys byzantina 'Helen Von Stein' - Lamb's Ear


Lamb's Ear is a mat-forming, dense, white/gray woolly perennial. The leaves are extremely hairy and very soft to the touch, thus the name Lamb's Ear. The Helen Von Stein is one of the best varieties available with larger leaves and it is more heat and humidity resistant. This cultivar does not bear flowers which would only detract from its unique foliage texture and color anyway. Stachys byzantina makes a good groundcover or border. It is very particular about too much water and prefers to remain dry, so by all means avoid wet feet. Stachys grows best in full sun and makes a great rock garden plant growing 12-18 inches in height and having a 24 inch spread.
