Deer Resistant IconRock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

An exquisite blend of chartreuse, silver, medium-green, and mint green embellishes the foliage of L. 'Anne Greenway'. With such fantastic coloring, this ground cover is breathtaking even when not in bloom. Mauve flowers add to the ornamental value from late spring into early summer. This Lamium spreads by underground stolons, rooting where stem nodes touch the ground, making it an excellent weed-smothering ground cover or cover for dying bulb foliage.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Lamium will brighten up any shady site with its silvery leaves, including under trees. Growth will be most compact in moist, well-drained soils, but it can grow in drier areas, though it may tend to open up. Lamium is evergreen in mild regions and herbaceous in cooler zones. In both areas, it will benefit by a shearing in the spring to stimulate healthy, new growth. Clumps can easily be divided in spring or early fall.
