Common Name (Alternative): Spotted Deadnettle
An exquisite blend of chartreuse, silver, medium-green, and mint green embellishes the foliage of L. 'Anne Greenaway'. With such fantastic coloring, this groundcover is breathtaking even when not in bloom. Mauve flowers add to the ornamental value from late spring into early summer.
This lamium spreads by underground stolons, rooting where stem nodes touch the ground. It was discovered by English plantsman, Bob Brown of Cotswold Gardens.
Lamium makes an excellent, weed-smothering groundcover and is also a good mask for dying bulb foliage.

Lamium will brighten up any shady site with its silvery leaves, including under trees. Growth will be most compact in moist, well-drained soils, but it can grow in drier areas, though it may tend to open up.
Lamium is evergreen in mild regions and herbaceous in cooler zones. In both areas, it will benefit by a shearing in the spring to stimulate healthy, new growth. Clumps can easily be divided in spring or early fall.
