Dead Nettle

Lamium maculatum 'Orchid Frost' PP11,122, COPF

Silvery white leaves with blue-green margins produce stems with large orchid-pink blooms.

Lamium is one of the best choices for a tough yet showy perennial groundcover. This selection forms a spreading patch of small silver leaves with a stunning blue-green edge. Clusters of rose-pink flowers appear in spring, then continue off and on until fall, appearing more reliably through summer than other varieties. Fairly tolerant of dry shade, once established. Trim back in late winter. Stems will root into the ground where they touch. Evergreen. USPP#11112, CPBR#1231: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
