An excellent, easy care evergreen ground cover for shade.
The silver, heart shaped leaves have a mid to deep green border. Spring to summer plenty of pink, hooded flowers open in clusters over the foliage, usually lasting into autumn. Quick to establish and long lasting.
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. In really cold climates where the ground freezes they may go dormant over winter.
Lamium is also known as Spotted Dead Nettle.
