Stachys lanata

Stachys lanata

Stachys byzantina (Stachys lanata) - A Soft and Attractive Perennial Stachys byzantina, commonly known as Lamb's Ear, is a soft and attractive perennial that adds a touch of texture and subtle colour to the garden with its silvery, woolly foliage and small flowers. Perfect for borders, ground cover, and cottage gardens, Lamb's Ear brings both beauty and a tactile element to various garden settings. The standout feature of Stachys byzantina is its velvety, silvery leaves. These soft, woolly leaves form a dense mat, creating an attractive ground cover that is pleasing to the touch. In summer, small, pale purple to pink flowers appear on upright stems, adding a delicate touch of colour above the foliage. The plant's low-growing, spreading habit makes it ideal for filling in gaps and creating a lush, textured carpet in the garden. Caring for Stachys byzantina is straightforward, making it suitable for gardeners of all experience levels. Plant Lamb's Ear in well-drained, moderately fertile to sandy soil and ensure it receives plenty of sunlight, though it can also thrive in partial shade. Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist, but avoid waterlogging, as it prefers slightly drier conditions. To maintain a tidy appearance, remove spent flower stems and any dead or damaged leaves. In late autumn, a light mulch can help protect the plant through winter. With its low maintenance needs and attractive foliage, Stachys byzantina is a wonderful addition to any garden, providing year-round interest and a unique, tactile experience.
