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.
