Sparkles Even in Moonlight
White Nancy produces milky white clusters of small, hooded flowers in late spring and sporadically throughout the summer. Stunning silvery leaves with narrow green margins make this an eye-catching groundcover even when not in bloom. A breath-taking display in an all-white garden. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.

Lamium General Information

Lamium are a perfect groundcover to brighten a partly sunny to shady spot. A great performer. Attractive foliage. Avoid dry soil with full sun. Best selections for the coldest areas. Easily grown in most well-draining garden soils. Once established they can tolerate somewhat drier conditions. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Lamium Plant Care

Vigorous grower but non invasive. Shear back to 4 to 6" if it gets leggy or cut back to new leaves at base of plant in midsummer. Can be divided as needed in spring or fall. Will self seed but seedlings may not grow true to parent.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
