Stachys 'Helene Von Stein' (Lamb's ears)

Stachys 'Helene Von Stein'

Lamb's ears

Also known as Big Ears, this low-growing selection produces a dense mat of woolly silver-gray leaves with an irresistible velvety feel. Although grown primarily for its interesting foliage, lamb's ear bears spikes of purplish pink flowers on tall stems that appear in summer. This cultivar is particularly useful to gardeners as its leaves won't melt in heat and humidity.
