Unlike Stachys byzantina (Lamb's Ear), this species forms large, rounded clumps of green, long and narrow, textured leaves. It is lovely even when it's not in bloom. In midsummer, sturdy spikes of lavender-rose flowers shoot up through the foliage, putting on quite a display. Since it is relatively unknown to many gardeners, people always gasp in awe of this plant when it is in bloom. It makes a unique addition to any sunny border!

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Stachys grows best in full sun but will also tolerate partial shade. Good drainage is essential for this plant. Divide every 3-4 years in spring or more frequently if plants become woody in the center.
