The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Stachys Byzantina, commonly known as Lambs Ears is a perennial groundcover originating from the Middle East. Its main asset is its soft, silver and grey, velvety leaves that as the common name suggests resemble lambs ears. Velvety feel is due to the tiny little hairs that cover the leaves and stems. As with most grey leafed plants that have hairs on the leaves, this plant is very efficient at retaining moisture. Once established it requires little moisture to survive.
