It makes a unique and stunning addition to any sunny border! This plant will add texture and color in rock gardens and looks wonderful with Veronica ‘ Goodness Grows’, Tradescantia ‘ Concord Grape’ or other purple blooming perennials.
The clumps will spread over time to form a dense ground cover.
Leaves are evergreen in warm winter climates, but will not do well in harsh winters.
A robust bloomer, this ‘ Hummelo’ Lamb’s Ear is an outstanding garden performer!
