Lamium maculatum Golden Anniversary

Creeping Lamium

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.305.300

(='Dellam') Lamium is one of the best choices for a tough yet showy perennial groundcover. This outstanding recent selection forms a spreading patch of small heart-shaped green leaves, brightly edged in gold, with a silvery stripe down the middle. Clusters of rosy-purple flowers appear in spring, then continue off and on until fall. Absolutely stunning as an accent plant in shady areas, or included in tubs and mixed containers. Fairly tolerant of dry shade, once established. Trim back in late winter. Evergreen. USPP#11783, CPBR#2013: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
