Lamium

 

Dead Nettles

Lamium are herbaceous plants that spread by both seeds and stems rooting as they grow along the ground. They can be annual or perennial. They are widely used as groundcover plants and are frost hardy, growing well in most soils. White or purple flowered species are planted in spring and prefer full sun. The yellow-flowered species are planted in autumn and prefer shade. They can be invasive.
