Quick Overview:

Helen Von Stein is the biggest leaved Lamb’s Ear around. Grown for its wonderful soft velvety, silver-green foliage. This variety rarely flowers. Leaf shape and texture resemble a lambs ear which kids love to rub between their fingers. Takes heat well.  Stachys are popular for edging or as groundcover. Soft, silvery foliage adds pleasing texture and contrast to border. Best in full sun with good drainage.

Description

Prefers evenly moist but well-drained soil. Deadhead to keep plants attractive and to keep from going to seed which declines the foliage. Do not prune for winter. Clean up foliage in spring. Can be divided every 4-5 years in spring by removing rooted sections and transplanting. Benefits from partial shade in hot climates.
