Stachys byzantina Big Ears

Stachys byzantina Big Ears

A large and diverse genus in the Mint family that includes a number of valuable garden plants. One of the best is Lamb's Ear, Stachys byzantina, a creeper with leaves that are so densely felted with white hairs that they appear gray or silver. This species does flower, throwing silver wands capped with small, pink or purple blooms, but its soft, woolly foliage is really the main attraction. 'Big Ears', also known as 'Countess Helen von Stein', produces huge leaves, growing up to 12in long--twice as big as conventional Lamb's Ears. The look is bolder and more settled. Plants prefer full sun and well-drained soil. They tolerate drought, but also get by in a bit of shade and quite heavy soil. What they cannot abide is extreme heat and humidity. Pot-grown.
