Lamiastrum galeobdolon ‘Florentinum’

Yellow Archangel

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.305.050

This plant offers gardeners one of the easiest solutions to dry shade areas. Plants form a fast-spreading, bushy carpet of attractive green and silver leaves, bearing small soft-yellow flowers in mid spring. Also excellent in tubs and mixed containers. Stems root into the ground readily, where they touch. It has an aggressive habit, but this is not a problem unless unleashed into the border. Although evergreen, plants should be clipped or mown hard in late winter. Easily increased by moving rooted plantlets in spring or fall.
