Stachys chrysantha (Yellow Stachys) - Tuft growing woody-stemmed perennial (sub-shrub) with ascendant white tomentose stems and to 1 inch long broadly ovate to nearly orbiculate, white lanate leaves. The compact spikes of light yellow inch long flowers appear in late spring to summer. Plant in a sunny location in poor well-drained soil and irrigate infrequently. This plant is considered a calciphile meaning that it likes alkaline soils which makes sense as it is from rocky screes in the mountainous regions of Greece.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Stachys chrysantha.
