Description
The Lamiums are called by the somewhat alarming name, Dead Nettle, but that means only this amazing little plant is related to stinging nettle (a rough weed) and doesn't sting...so being a dead nettle is a good thing.

The strange name aside, these short plants (6-10 high), when well grown, can add glistening sheets of color to shady areas were color may be missing. Plant them with Hostas, Bleeding Hearts, and other shade-lovers. They cover the ground so completely they smother out any invading weeds.

            These came healthy and produced lots of flowers, growing vigorously. Unfortunately, some local insect attacked them and they got a fleabitten appearence after a few months. Before becoming 'lunch' they were gorgeous.
