Teaser: Ornamental, silvery, wooly foliage with unusual shaped leaves!
Description:

Ornamental, silvery, wooly foliage with unusual shaped leaves of 7.5-10 cm (3-4") in length provide a nice accent in the garden. Very tiny, mauve & white flowers appear early summer. A good pollinator forage plant. This plant is at its best when it can be sown between rockery stones or along a garden path to enjoy the interesting mat of felt textured leaves. Plants spread 30 to 45 cm (12-18") across. The genus name Stachys is Greek, meaning spike or ear of grain because of inflorescence shape. Some gardeners have commented that Lamb's Ear is so adaptable, it likely could grow on the moon! Persists best in well drained soils. Hardy to Zone 4.
