    Soft spikes of woolly, purple flowers from June to September above rosettes of large, greyish white, felted leaves. This form of lambs' ears is primarily grown for its leaves, which are larger than other varieties. An excellent groundcover plant for sites in full sun, it's drought tolerant and provides a weed-suppressing carpet for much of the year.

  • Garden care: Pick off and destroy any foliage that becomes infected by powdery mildew and treat the remaining leaves with fungicide. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.
