Lamium maculatum ‘Lemon Frost’

Creeping Lamium

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.305.270

A delightful and colourful perennial groundcover, this forms a patch of small lemon-lime leaves with a central silver stripe. Clusters of deep lavender-pink flowers appear in spring, then continue on and off until fall. Slower to spread than most other selections. Trim or mow back hard in late winter if desired. In warm summer regions this may tend to burn if given direct sun from noon onwards. Evergreen. USPP#20723: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
