This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • 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.
