Stachys byzantina (Lamb’s Ears) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Sow the seeds in a pot indoors in late winter to early spring, just pressed into the surface of the growing medium, and set them in a warm, bright place to germinate. Or, start them in a pot outdoors in early to midsummer. Figure that they will take 2 to 4 weeks to germinate, but they may start sooner than that. (The last time I grew lamb’s ears from seed, I sowed indoors under lights on May 5 and they started sprouting on May 9!)

Lamb’s ears (Stachys byzantina) is known for its “please touch me” fuzzy, silver-gray foliage, which grows in low, spreading patches—great for filling space as a groundcover or along a path or walkway. In summer, it sends up stout stalks typically 12 to 18 inches tall, with whorls of small, purplish pink flowers among the silvery hairs. It may self-sow if you don’t clip off the flower stalks before the seeds form. Best in full sun but can tolerate light shade; average to dry soil. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8, usually (it can take heat but doesn’t like muggy summers or wet winters).

Collected in mid to late August 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
