 Common Name: Archangel-Yellow
Common Name (Alternative): Deadnettle

Like a larger version of Lamium 'White Nancy', Yellow Archangel is a hardy groundcover for partial to full shade. It is able to withstand dry conditions very well, and therefore can be grown under trees or in other difficult sites.

Lamiastrum will first form a neat mound of foliage, and will then proceed to spread to fill in the surrounding area. Bright yellow flowers are produced briefly in late spring. This variety was previously known as Lamium galeobdolon.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Lamiastrum will brighten up any shady site with its silvery leaves, including under trees. Growth will be most compact in moist, well-drained soils, but it can grow in drier areas, though it may tend to open up.

Lamiastrum is evergreen in mild regions and herbaceous in cooler zones. In both areas, it will benefit by a shearing in the spring to stimulate healthy, new growth. Clumps can easily be divided in spring or early fall.
