An excellent, evergreen ground cover with silver, heart shaped leaves bordered in mid to deep green. Spring to summer plenty of pink flowers will open in clusters over the foliage. Quick to establish easy care.

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, in pots or hanging baskets.

Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich soil. Choose a part shade to filtered light position. Water in, then you only need worry only if rainfall is low, they are quite 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.
