Ghost Lamium

Description

Tired of mulching bare spots in the shade garden? Lamium covers up that dirt and adds colorful flowers, foliage and texture. This easy-care, mat-forming ground cover provides pops of purple blooms from mid spring to early summer. But what really makes this tough perennial a standout is its vivid foliage that ranges from chartreuse to silvery white to many shades of green.

Lamium grows well in shaded to partially shaded to shaded areas, making it perfect for planting along the edges of woodland gardens or as a transition from one shade garden area to the next. When planted with spring-blooming bulbs, its colorful leaves hide fading bulb foliage. Ships in 3" pot. Lamium maculatum

  • Unique CharactersticsThis very large variety dwarfs other lamiums by comparison! Standing about a foot tall, the all-silver leaves create a billowy cloud of silver in the garden. The leaves measure a full 1.5 inches long compared to 1/2 to 3/4 inches long on other varieties.Clusters of large, bright orchid purple flowers top the clump of silver foliage in mid to late spring. The contrast between the flowers and foliage is striking and often stops passersby in their tracks!Lamium makes an excellent, weed-smothering groundcover and is also a good mask for dying bulb foliage.
