This plant gets asked about more than any other in my garden
By Mary R.

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Stachys lavandulifolius:
I planted this little gem 6 years ago in my xeric hellstrip, which gets watered only a few times a year. It was a little slow to get started, but this spring it's about 2 feet across. It pairs beautiful w the wooly Veronica at its feet, and later in the season is surrounded by various penstemons and sages. I've never seen this plant anywhere but HCG! Everyone wants to bend over and touch it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Tough as nails and cool looking!
from Millcreek, UT
About Me Professional Landscaper
Has done super well in my drip irrigated yard at 5500' in the Salt Lake City area. It lived two years in a pot with minimal love before I got it in the ground! I water once a week at most in the heat of the summer in late June through and mid-August - less in late spring and early fall. Cool texture when done blooming!
One Bloom So Far!
from Huntington Beach, California
Since it has only been in the ground for about 7 months I only had one flower spike this spring, but it is already about 12" in diameter and I think I'll have many more blooms to come. I have to say, however, it is not pink as noted, it's a beautiful lavender.

About Me Getting Started
I love this little thing. It's the only one of my plants from last year that didn't die. It rained without stopping through April and May, then was suddenly 100 degrees in June with only one rainstorm for the rest of the summer. So, rather ridiculous weather. But the lamb's ear hung in there, and it was much bigger when it came back this year. It's so soft and delicate looking, but a tough little kid. Definitely recommended.

Gets better every year
By Pollinator Pam
from Montezuma, NM
I am loving this plant, and it gets more impressive every year. It's a great ground cover that has slowly been spreading in a garden with Greek and Serbian yarrow, delosperma, and agastache. I'm growing it in a clay loam with very little extra water in zone 5/6 with about 12-15" of precipitation per year with pea gravel mulch. The flowers are a lovely color, and the fuzzy look of the plants is unique and it looks especially great when back-lit with late-day sun. Along with delosperma, it's becoming one of my go-to groundcovers for all my gardens. Pollinating insects also seem to love it.
Didn't do well in Washington State in 2015
from Washington State
This plant didn't do well in 2015 in WA State, we had a very hot summer and even though I kept it watered the plant remained dry.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Master Gardener
I planted this Stachys in a container because it was small and I wanted to observe it at close range for a few months before planting it in the garden. I had it in a full, hot sun location and it suffered a bit of leaf burn. After moving it to a cooler location it grew and bloomed. The flowers were very impressive.
Pink Cotton Lambs Ear
This lamb's ear arrived beautiful and healthy. I couldn't find it anywhere at local garden shops and was so happy to find High Country Gardens. I will purchase plants again in the future. Thank you
