Description

8-10" tall x 12-15" wide. Stachys lavandulifolius (Pink Cotton Lamb's Ear) is an amazing xeric wildflower that is truly breathtaking in full bloom. Pink Cotton Lambs Ear has attractive low growing gray-green foliage and a profuse display of fuzzy, bright pink flower spikes unlike any you've seen before. They are stacked with woolly calyxes (flower sheaths) that create a halo of pinkish-white fibers through which bright rose-pink blossoms emerge. Catching the late afternoon sun, the flower spikes positively glow with pink! Our selection of Stachys lavandulifolius adapts easily to garden cultivation, is nicely xeric and thrives in a range of soils including dry clay. It is an excellent choice for hot, harsh, poor soil sites and is highly resistant to browsing animals once established. Deadhead promptly after flowering is done to keep the plant tidy and the foliage looking good. (Cutting propagated.)
