Description

(4-6" tall x 18-30" wide.) Stachys byzantina 'Silver Carpet' (Lamb's Ear) is a handsome, fuzzy, grey-leaved groundcover that thrives in problem areas such as dry shade and poor soils. Non-flowering, use the foliage to contrast nicely with green and blue leaved plants. A great medium spreading groundcover that thrives in the xeric garden. Best in regions with dry summer heat; avoid planting in areas with high humidity, as these conditions can cause foliar rot. Good for Firescaping.
