Stachys is a strong border plant. It provides year-round colour with evergreen woolly, silver white leaves, and spikes of striking deep-rose flowers in July and August. It grows to a height of 35-40cm and is useful in borders as well as providing ground cover (it is good at suppressing weeds). It is also grown as a culinary herb, and used for garnishing food.
Stachys likes full sun and part shade and rich well-drained soil. It is low maintenance once established and will grow in drier soils.
Grown in Cornwall, UK.
