Lamium maculatum

Lamium maculatum

Zones: 2 – 9
Bloom Time: Summer
Height: 3” – 8”

The silver leaves of Lamium are lined with dark green and the flowers range from pink to purple.

It is a pretty plant that makes a good edging or ground cover in difficult growing conditions.

It tolerates drought and shade.

An evergreen that needs to be cut back in late winter, it blooms all summer.

It rapidly spreads by rooting at the stem joints and is considered mildly invasive.

I use it as an edging between the public sidewalk and my picket fence in my north facing front garden.

I find it easy to contain by pulling out the unwanted plants.
