Details8" tall x 8-15" wide. Stachys byzantina 'Helen Von Stein' A mounding, large-leafed version of common Lamb's Ear with large soft silver leaves. Easily grown in any average to poor garden soil that has good drainage. It rarely flowers and is a great choice to replace standard lamb's ears (which reseeds and becomes weedy).

Q & A
USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
