Friday's Flower: Ghost Lamium

Friday’s Flower - Ghost Lamium.jpg

If you’re looking for a striking and hardy groundcover, then you should take a look at Lamium.  This evergreen perennial has lovely variegated heart-shaped leaves.

 Deer and most other herbivores will ignore this plant, making it even more desirable. 

 As with other Lamiums, the Ghost Lamium  prefers somewhat shady, dry conditions.  It produces blossoms beginning in the spring and continuing throughout the summer months.

 Its draping habit also makes it great for containers.

 It grows to be about a foot tall and spreads to be 1-2’ across.

 Keep an eye on this plant as it can travel to places where you may not want it.  If it gets into your lawn, it will return after you mow it down.
