Growing Lamium (Dead Nettle)

Latin Name Pronunciation: lay'mee-um 

Plant in partial shade or shade. Lamium is not fussy about soil and tolerates dry shade in the North. Spreads rapidly but not invasively. Shear plants (lightly in the North and West, almost to the ground in the South) after the first wave of flowering to keep Lamium tidy and to encourage rebloom. Foliage is evergreen in mild-winter climates.
