Lamium maculatum


Dead nettles grow in shady places where many other flowers will not. Their bright variegated foliage and pink or white flowers make them excellent small-scale ground covers. In hanging containers, their trailing stems with heart-shaped, 1½- to 2-inch leaves drape over the edges. Deciduous in cold climates and partially evergreen elsewhere. Shear back to generate bloom and keep foliage fresh.
