Beautiful! Lamb's Ears spread quickly, so each of these clumps may have begun with just one or two plants each. I wouldn't plant this many together at once, but you won't have to wait long to get this look. If you want even speedier results (and don't mind thinning later), plant 2-3 per clump and sprinkle some seeds around them. There are many plants with soft gray leaves that go by the name Lamb's Ears, so check the tag for more info. Many of them have beautiful flowers; some can be invasive (including my favorite, Rose Campion, aka Lychnis).

Lamb's ears...I have them too and they are fun and fuzzy, but they are a beast to separate!! only a shovel will do!! :)
one note about Gertrude Jekyll. I read that she banned "love lies bleeding" so I got some :) and I love it! it's taller than I expected but it's beautiful and creepy at the same time.

I'm thinking bluestone or gray slate, but I'll defer to Becky.

White flower - What are the white flowers behind the lambs ear.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Citrus 101: Start Your Own Backyard Orchard
A potted dwarf citrus tree is a great alternative if you know you don't have the correct space, drainage, temperature, or sunlight exposure for a regular sized citrus. Like the Dwarf Redblush grapefruit, most of these trees are smaller in plant size, but produce normal-sized fruit.
Great Gray PlantsLamb's ear is a prolific, spreading bear of a plant, but I still love it for its gray tones. Even with its soft, fuzzy leaves and ability to flourish in harsh locales, the color is the best part of this plant.
We can also see a much more natural use of edging plants. One of the softest edgings that really blends this border to the path is lamb's ears (Stachys byzantina). Stachys was a favorite edging plant of Gertrude Jekyll, the Edwardian garden designer who taught us how to use color in our borders. In many of her planting schemes, especially the long color-schemed herbaceous borders for which she is famous, she loved using low-growing silver-foliage plants as edging. She found that the neutral gray-silver coloring harmonized with a variety of colored flowers within her borders.
