    • A super low-maintenance plant. I forgot I planted this in one area of my garden, and completely neglected it. It bloomed way longer than I expected, and when I replanted it the following year, it came back strong as ever. There hasn't been any sign of wilting, it's a beautiful plant.

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • Lamium is a great ground cover and for me it has grown in the shade and in full sun. Grows and spreads quickly. A bit tooo social especially if you live close to the forest. I have had to continually pull this from the woods because it is not native and I do not want it taking over.

    • Love, love, love Lamium! One of my favorite groundcover perennials in my yard. This one has beautiful flowers, as do many of my other varieties.

    • I work at Hart Farm and I was given this plant to grow in my garden. This is a care free specimen that I planted in a pot, placed it in partial shade, and watered daily. With little grooming, it took off and created a profusion of green and lime colored leaves ending in small purple button flowers. I love it!
