Description

Lamium (Deadnettle)  LAY-mee-um

Looking for a fast-growing, attractive ground cover for your shade garden? Consider lamium (Lamium maculatum), sometimes known as spotted deadnettle. This plant is a member of the mint family and is beloved by gardeners for its compact form and attractive foliage. The leaves are tear-shaped and may be serrated. Most lamium varieties have variegated leaves, with lime green, yellow or white variegations. It is a beautiful plant with colorful spring flowers. During the blooming period you will see small clusters of purple flowers, white flowers or pink flowers that appear from spring through late summer. It is an excellent choice as a perennial ground cover since it tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, although it grows most quickly in slightly moist, humus-rich soils.
