Spotted Dead Nettle
Lamium maculatum 'Ghost'

1 gallon pot


This very large variety dwarfs other lamiums by comparison! Standing about a foot tall, the all-silver leaves create a billowy cloud of silver in the garden. The leaves measure a full 1.5 inches long compared to 1/2 to 3/4 inches long on other varieties.Clusters of large, bright orchid purple flowers top the clump of silver foliage in mid to late spring. The contrast between the flowers and foliage is striking and often stops passersby in their tracks!Lamium makes an excellent, weed-smothering groundcover and is also a good mask for dying bulb foliage. Thrives under tree canopies. Blooms late spring to early summer. 

It will benefit by a shearing in the spring to stimulate healthy, new growth. Clumps can easily be divided in spring or early fall.
