This lively groundcover is valued for its foliage as much as its flowers. Scalloped silver leaves thinly edged in green spread readily and will divide easily for an economical way to cover a large expanse over time. Hooded rose-red to red-purple flowers in spring rebloom sporadically until fall.

Lamium tolerates dry shade once established and stems root into the ground where they touch. A stunning filler for container plantings. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.
