Lamium White Nancy
Lamium White Nancy

Dead Nettle

Nearly all-silver leaves with narrow, blue-green margins are a lovely backdrop for the pure white, hooded flowers which are produced from mid spring to early summer. 'White Nancy' is particularly dense and low growing.  Lamium makes an excellent, weed-smothering groundcover and is also a good mask for dying bulb foliage.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Lamium is an excellent plant to use in shady sites. It will be most attractive in rich, moist soil but is a tough plant, surviving in drier areas including under trees once established. Trim back in late winter. Stems will root into the ground where they touch.
