    The Herb Gardener: Best Drought Tolerant Herbs for Your Summer Garden. Lambs ears - Wooly Lambs ears (Stachys byzantina) has few herbal uses these days, but once it was considered a great wound dressing. Today it's used primarily as a landscape plant. It's quite lovely, with fuzzy leaves and lavender stalks that can reach 18 inches high or a bit more if it's happy. It fills in so well it can become a bit of a pest. Children love it, though.
