Summer Frost Pink Candy

Stachys lavandulifolia

Stachys lavandulifolia (silver form) is an elegant, silver sport of Pink Cotton lamb's ear grown primarily for its bright, silver-haired leaves that add beauty and texture. Flossy clusters of pink trumpets really do suggest cotton candy. Although this plant blooms slightly less vigorously than its parent, Pink Cotton Lamb's Ear, both are destined to be classic additions to American gardens.
