(Lambs Ear) Stachys 'Hummelo' has sturdy rosy-lavender spikes that sit above the foliage, and makes an impressive display in midsummer. Unlike the more common types of Stachys, which have soft silvery foliage, 'Hummelo' has glossy dark green foliage which remains attractive all season. Plant in a well drained area, with full to part sun. 'Hummelo' grows approximately 18 inches high and wide, and is rabbit and deer resistant. Great garden uses include containers, borders, mass plantings, and cut flowers. Besides being very easy to grow, 'Hummelo' is a versatile perennial and would be an impressive companion to just about anything in your garden.

Delicate & Pretty Review by Tammy | Zone: 6
I planted this plant last year in a somewhat shady area of my garden. It has returned this spring and is one of my favorite flowering plants! It is so delicate and pretty and easy to grow. No special care seems to be required and it is pest free. This plant will not disappoint! (Posted on 6/7/2009)
