Lamium maculatum 'Cosmopolitan'

Common Name: Spotted Deadnettle

This miniature sport of Lamium 'Shell Pink' has very small, nearly all-silver leaves and a compact habit. It's the best variety of Lamium for combination containers, a restrained "spiller" that won't overrun all the other plants in the container. Light pink flowers are produced from mid-spring to early summer, and may rebloom in early fall.

Lamium makes an excellent, weed-smothering groundcover and is also a good mask for dying bulb foliage.
