Purple Dragon Lamium

Description
With silvery white leaves sporting green edges, this reliable ground cover has already solved a shady garden problem—add deep purple flowers in late spring and its impact really is magical. Forget about your dry shade conditions. When established, your shade garden will be brightened by Purple Dragon and have a polished, professional look. Beautiful trailing from mixed containers or used to edge borders. Lamium grows well in shaded to partially shaded areas, making it perfect for planting along the edges of woodland gardens or as a transition from one shadowy garden area to the next. When planted with spring-blooming bulbs, its colorful leaves hide messy bulb foliage when it begins to fade. Lamium maculatum 'Purple Dragon'.
