    Comments about Stachys byzantina 'Silver Carpet':

    I read that these plants will attract pollinators called carder bees, I was looking for a hardy plant for a sunny dry spot in our front garden, it seems to have 'ticked all the boxes'. I haven't seen evidence of the bees I hoped to attract, but I will keep looking this growing season!

      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!
