Description
The Lamiums are more popular every year. Perhaps they haven't been known widely since their old common name is Dead Nettle. But they're extremely useful in the garden, since they thrive and bloom beautifully in shade. The basic species is taller and more weedy with insignificant white flowers, but just look at the shortened hybrids--beautiful jewel-toned flowers on decorative, often variegated foliage. Great for covering the ground in woodland or other shady gardens.

    I purchase this plant as ground cover, it came perfect in the mail and after I planted it, it has been spreading nicely and doing well in my new shade garden

        Comments about American Meadows Lamium Orchid Frost:

        I L-O-V-E this ground cover! It is just the most wonderful variegated color and the flower heads are adorable! It definitely stays low (be careful what you plant it next to, it may become hidden), but it is one of my favorite additions. It is the easiest thing to propagate from cuttings as well! And the leaves have never been burned by what Florida sun hits them (which I can't say for all shade plants listed for zone 9). The ONLY problem is the leaves appear to be highly munch-able to garden insects. I lost one b/c it was eaten to nothing in a day! BUT I used a little Organocide this year and problem appears to be solved:)
