Stachys byzantina is a wonderful evergreen perennial, mostly grown for its rich rosettes of showy, velvety, silvery tongue-shaped leaves, resembling furry ears and bringing interest to the border. Pink-purple flower spikes appear in the late spring and early summer. The flowers add textural interest, but cutting them off promotes foliage growth and improves the plant's vigour.
