Destined To Be A Cottage Garden Favorite – Stachys Officinalis ‘Pink Cotton Candy’

A new introduction from the Chicago Botanic Garden, Stachys officinalis ‘Pink Cotton Candy’ is destined to be a cottage garden favorite.

Tall wands of two-toned, light and dark pink blossoms arise above clumps of tidy green leaves. Stachys is a genus of the Mint family, and this variety is not only beautiful but bee-friendly. lt’s also deer and rabbit resistant.

    Here is a link for you. I have been washing my face with a mixture of honey and organic coconut oil for a while and I really love it. Also, if you do a honey search on their site, you’ll find some nice articles on bees…….

  3. It looks like a pink stachys ‘Hummelo’. Very pretty! Bees go insane for my Rose of Sharon. The whole shrub sounds like it’s humming in the summer. :)
