Creeping Lamium
Lamium maculatum ‘Shell Pink’

Print Plant

  

Lamium is one of the best choices for a tough yet showy perennial groundcover. This selection forms a spreading patch of small heart-shaped green leaves with a silvery stripe down the middle. Clusters of soft-pink flowers appear in spring, then continue on and off until fall. Fairly tolerant of dry shade, once established. Trim back in late winter. Stems will root into the ground where they touch, and any new plants that form can be easily moved in spring or fall. Also easily divided. Evergreen.
