WHOLESALE STACHYS NURSERIES
It is both Stachys byzantina and Stachys macrantha along with a few other species that are often called Lamb’s Ears and make great ground cover plants.
The species offered by most wholesale growers is Stachys byzantina, commonly in 14cm pots however also as tube stock for larger planting schemes.
Excellent for mass planting and very popular in home gardens as well. Appreciated for the texture that they provide in gardens. Suited for revegetation projects as well as for replanting in established gardens.
The main landscaping attraction is the grey green soft velvety foliage that gives the plant its common name. Used widely as a ground cover plant, as a low edging plant next to paths and at the front of the perennial border as well as for underplanting taller shrubs in containers.
