Stachys is a genus of flowering plants within the Lamiaceae (mint) family, native to Europe, Asia, Africa and Australasia. They are more commonly referred to as lamb’s ears. The genus name was given by Carl Linnaeus, a Swedish botanist in his works ‘Species Plantarum’ in 1753. The name is derived from the Greek ‘Stachys’, meaning ‘an ear of grain’ and refers to its often spike-like structure.
Stachys are annuals, perennials or shrubs with often ovate-shaped, aromatic foliage decorated with erect spikes of two-lipped flowers. These are held by strong, robust and thick stems throughout summer and autumn.
