What Houzz contributors are saying:

This clump of lamb's ear (Stachys byzantina, zones 4 to 9) sparkles with frost on cold mornings. Its textured foliage holds up through freezing rain, hail and hard freezes, making it one of the most resilient plants that I grow. This cultivar, 'Helen Von Stein', has sporadic flowers and large leaves that grow on fuzzy stems. Of Mediterranean origin, the plants require full sun and well-drained soil that isn't too rich, so throw some gravel into the hole when you set the plants into the ground. They're especially useful along walkways and near boulders, as their soft textures contrast nicely with stone.
