Pink Cotton Lamb's Ear

Stachys lavandulifolia

Stachys lavandulifolia (green form) is a slow creeping cousin to Lamb's ear that makes low mats of soft, attractive foliage with incredibly flossy clusters of pink trumpets in late spring-early summer that really do suggest cotton candy. Rabbit and deer resistant, this perennial is a superior selection of a Turkish wildflower for the front of the garden border, or in a xeriscape garden.
