The fuzzy cat's fur-like foliage of Stachys byzantina 'Primrose Heron' is soft to the touch. It emerges pale blue green, but those portions that are most exposed to the sun tend to turn pale yellow green giving rise to the plant's name. All of this is complemented by occasional 12-inch flowering stems bearing whorls of pale pink flowers. A lovely and somewhat mysterious woody ground cover for the mediterranean border.

Early summer to early autumn.  10-12 in. x 2 ft.

Pale Pink flowers

Sun     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
