Stachys byzantina Big Ears


Giant Lamb’s-ears

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.495.080


(='Helene von Stein') One of the most outstanding silver-leaved perennials. Plants form a low mound of large, velvety silver or grey-green leaves. Versatile and vigorous, with many possible uses, as edging, groundcover, and most especially in tubs or mixed containers. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Tolerates heat and humidity. Unlike most other selections, this variety seldom blooms, remaining effective all through the summer and fall with little maintenance required. Clumps may be easily divided in fall or early spring. Drought tolerant once established.
