Stachys byzantina (Lambs Ears) gets its common name due to its soft, velvety leaves that resemble lambs ears. Foliage is silvery-green in colour and is accompanied by pink-purple flower spikes in late spring to early summer.


Grows best in a full sun to part shade position and prefers a well-drained soil. Is extremely easy to grow and will spread in a clumping habit by sending out runners. Is drought resistant and has low water needs.

Landscape Uses

Great as a groundcover or border plant. Its silver foliage makes for a perfect contrast to plants with bright coloured blooms or deep green foliage. Ideal for cottage or low water gardens. Plant with other cottage favourites such as Achillea millefolium 'Terracotta' and Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna'.
