Lamb’s Ear ‘Helene von Stein’

SKU: 118328 Categories: ,


‘Helene von Stein’ is noted for its silver-green foliage which forms an attractive ground cover. Dense rosettes of thick, soft, velvety, silver-green leaves (to 8″ long) form a mat approximately 8″ off the ground. Flowering stems are rare. Leaf shape and texture resemble a lamb’s ear, hence the common name. Leaves are evergreen in warm climates, but will depreciate considerably in harsh winters. This cultivar is synonymous with ‘Big Ears’.
