The leaves are a riot of green, gold and silver. If the foliage wasn’t enough excitement for you, from spring to frost there is a delightful sprinkling of mauve flowers.
Lamium are low maintenance plants that grow to form handsome clumps at a moderate rate. Lamium make great ground covers in shade (even dry shade is ok), beneath trees, in pots or hanging baskets.
Lamium are lovely and easy care and will grow in tough conditions. Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich soil. Choose a part shade to filtered light position. Water in, then you only need to worry if rainfall is low, they are quite dry tolerant once established. If there is too much sun the foliage will burn. Lamium will spread but is easily removed as required, you can even mow it!
