STACHYS byzantina

Primarily grown for its soft, silvery, basal foliage this species of lamb's ear produces lavender flowers in summer. The flowers are commonly removed from the plants as they develop as some feel they detract from the overall appearance of the plant. During periods of hot, humid weather foliar diseases may develop leading to dead areas in the center of the plant. If possible, avoid overhead watering and watering late in the day during these periods.
