So sweet and fuzzy...yet strong!

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Stachys byzantina Helen von Stein:
I have this planted in at least four different areas (coarse fill dirt, partial clay, compacted soil, and blazing hot fine sand-silt) and it does great in all three! Makes a VERY thick living mulch. It won't hurt existing plants, but it will keep new ones from establishing. I never mow ours, nor do I trim any leaves. If any leaves happen to die over a wet winter, then they can be easily plucked in spring...or I just leave them there and new growth quickly covers them. I have been quite aggressive with dividing in the past, and find that these quickly recover from being transplanted or propagated. They seem to require regular watering for a few weeks after transplant/division, but then a new and very tough plant results, even from a quite small portion of root and stem. I seldom water after initial settling in period; maybe a quick, absent minded and sporadic splash as I water nearby plants. It definitely doesn't seem to need a drip system or anything like that. Where we live we get 15.5 inches of irregularly delivered precipitation annually. It is a low humidity, high winds, high elevation area. I have included a photo of some lambs ears that I had divided and planted as a small piece last fall along with many other types of little, new plants. You can see that there in the foreground, the lambs ears is already largest by far. It's healthy and beautiful! I highly recommend as a fantastic and reliable addition to almost any landscape.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bought 2 more this year after the first one survived a harsh winter and summer heat. Nice lined up near my driveway. Had pretty yellow flowers that were a surprise
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.
