Lamium or dead nettle are very useful hardy perennials. Tough and resilient, they thrive in shade on almost any soil, making ideal ground cover or a must-have addition to a woodland or wildlife garden. Lamium maculatum ‘Beacon Silver’ is a stunning variety forming a shimmering carpet of silver foliage with toothed green margins. From April until midsummer, the clusters of bright purple-pink flowers provide a rich supply of nectar for pollinating insects. Provided it is watered until established, this attractive dead nettle is a great plant for tricky spots in dry shade. And don't worry, it doesn't sting! Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant Lamium in semi or dappled shade. Dead Nettles prefer a well drained, moist, fertile soil, but can cope well in drier soils once established. On drier soils, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or compost prior to planting and choose a shaded position.
Water Lamium plants regularly throughout summer until fully established. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Dead Nettle in spring to maintain their vigour.
