Smaller leaves more densely packed together and it doesn’t flower (mostly) so it puts all its energy into better foliage

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil:well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Rosettes of silver, greyish white leaves provide an attractive, weed suppressing carpet for much of the year. This variety of 'Lamb's Ears' rarely flowers and is an excellent, drought-tolerant groundcover or edging plant for a well-drained site in full sun. The foliage is a more intense shade of silver than flowering varieties of the plant.

  • Garden care: Avoid excessive winter wet and lift and divide large clumps in early spring.

    Comments about Stachys byzantina 'Silver Carpet':

    The Stachys Byzantina plants arrived quickly and in good health. I am using them aground cover in my rose bed and they established very quickly. They have grown really well and are now about 5 times their original size! I am very pleased indeed, not only with the plants, but with the care taken by Crocus staff and speed of the order. Many thanks!
