Soft, cuddly silver foliage is the main calling card for this lovely plant. It is a wonderful component plant to add a pop of bright color. The large foliage adds great texture to your container planting. It can function as a thriller or a filler in recipes, but either way it will be the focal point of your container. It is happiest with abundant sun and warm to hot temperatures. It prefers moist to dry soil and will not tolerate consistently wet soils.
This head-turner makes an outstanding focal point in containers and landscapes and has fantastic impulse appeal. Large, silky, silvery white leaves grow quickly to form a substantial, upright clump.
Large, silky-textured, silvery white leaves form a substantial clump and make an outstanding focal point in containers and landscapes. Like many felted silver plants, good drainage and abundant sunshine are important to achieve healthy, vigorous growth. This plant looks right at home in crevice gardens, shallow troughs and planted along the edge of a rock wall. When some plants start to languish in the summer heat, Angel Wings is just getting started. Deer and rabbits don’t enjoy its textured foliage, but gardeners will find it hard not to “pet” since its leaves are as soft as a puppy’s ears.
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
