(Stachys lanata) Beautiful silvery-grey felt-like foliage with spikes of
tiny purplish flowers. A favorite in Heritage Farm’s
perennial border. Absorbent leaves were used by
settlers to bandage wounds. Cut off stalks when
blossoms fade for a second bloom in late summer.
Grows 18-24" tall. Perennial in zones 4-9.
8-10 weeks before last frost
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds indoors just beneath surface of soil.
Transplant outdoors in early spring just before last
frost. Does best in rich well-drained soil. Lamb’s
Ears makes a great groundcover and border plant.
