2019 Perennial Plant of the Year ™
(What's my zone?)
Zone: 4 to 8Perennial
|Blooms mid-summer to late summer|
Cultivar Notes - 'Hummelo'
this species forms large, rounded clumps of green, long and narrow, textured leaves. It is lovely even when it's not in bloom. In midsummer, sturdy spikes of lavender-rose flowers shoot up through the foliage, putting on quite a display.
Genus Notes - Stachys
Wonderful for children's gardens! Lamb's Ear is aptly named; its leaves are velvety soft, greenish-silver, and shaped like its namesake. It is a wonderful plant for edging, massed in the front of the border garden, or in containers. This genus in the Mint family includes a number of fine garden plants. The most striking and useful of the group is grown more for its spreading mat of silver leaves than for its early summer flowers.
