Growing & Maintenance Tips for Stachys byzantina 'Helene von Stein'

Stachys requires good well-drained soil. It is very drought tolerant. Take a rake for spring cleanup and rake up the unsightly foliage. Divide after a few years for thinning or if the centers become woody. Division is usually best in spring, but can be done in late summer.
