Latin Name Pronunciation: stak'iss
Grow Stachys in full sun and evenly moist, well-drained soil. Once established, plants are drought tolerant. In a hot, humid summer, which is typical in the South, Stachys appreciates light afternoon shade.
S. byzantina (Lamb's Ear) may "mug off” when grown in the heat and humidity of the South. Cut or pull off affected foliage and new growth will generally reappear in late summer or fall.
