Helen Von Stein Lambs Ear or Stachys Big Ears makes a wonderful foliar accent as it is grown for its large, fuzzy, silver leaves. This is a great edging plant with a uniform, mounding habit.

Helen Von Stein Lambs Ear is noted for its silver-green foliage, which forms an attractive ground cover. Dense rosettes of thick, soft, velvety, silver-green leaves (to 8″ long) form a mat approximately 8 inches off the ground. Flowering stems are rare. Leaf shape and texture resemble a lamb’s ear, hence the common name. Leaves are evergreen in warm climates but will depreciate considerably in harsh winters.

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot climates. Too much shade, however, may impede leaf drying and promote the onset of disease (see Problems section below). Avoid overhead watering. If mid-summer foliage decline occurs, pick off damaged leaves as needed. Spreads by creeping stems that root as they go along the ground and can be mildly aggressive in rich soils. Plant 12 to 18 inches apart for use as ground cover. Divide when necessary or to fill in bare patches.
