Lamium ‘Beacon Silver’ is a low maintenance plant that grows to form handsome clumps at a moderate rate. Plant it as a ground cover in shade (even dry shade is ok), beneath trees, or in pots or hanging baskets.
Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich soil. Choose a part shade to filtered light position. Water in, then only if rainfall is low, they are dry tolerant once established. If there is too much sun the foliage will burn. Lamium ‘Beacon Silver’ will spread but is easily removed as required.
Lamium is also known as Spotted Dead Nettle.
