Soft, Silvery, and Fuzzy
Silver Carpet Lamb's Ear (STACHYS Byzantina Silver Carpet) is a plant that demands to be touched. Kids can’t keep their hands off of it. It’s like petting, well, a little lamb!
Lambs Ear is great for its visual interest and the way it contrasts with almost everything else in the garden. The unique gray color makes every other color beside it shine brighter and the beautifully rounded leaves make other foliage look more striking. This is a great edging plant that makes your borders and beds sing.
'Silver Carpet' loves full sun and good drainage. It appreciates some light afternoon shade in really hot climates. Mostly non-flowering, the lamb's ear-shaped leaves of this plant are soft and silver in color and are completely fuzzy. We dare you to not touch them when you walk by!
Lamb's Ear will add texture and color in rock gardens, containers, perennial beds and pathways. It makes a soft collar around the base of a mailbox or bird bath. Try a few stuffed into pockets in a crumbling stone wall or in a crevice in a big rock. Use it as a phenomenal contrasting groundcover for fine textured grasses and sedges. You really can’t go wrong wherever you decide to use it!
'Silver Carpet' Lamb's Ear makes a unique and stunning addition to any sunny border, so make sure to order yours soon!
