Stachys byzantina ‘Silver Carpet’

Print Plant

  

Lamb’s-ears are one of the most popular silver-leaved perennials, used widely for edging along pathways and borders. Plants form dense clumps of soft, felty silver grey leaves. This selection rarely blooms, so plants maintain an attractive and compact appearance for the entire season. Clumps are easily divided in spring or early fall. Evergreen in mild winter regions. Drought tolerant once established.
