The glistening silvery foliage of Lamium 'Mega Purple' contrasts beautifully its mauve, open mouthed blooms. This resilient Dead Nettle loves a shady spot, where it will quickly form a carpet of shimmering leaves. Flowering throughout the summer, its nectar rich blooms are a magnet for pollinating insects making it ideal for wildlife gardens, cottage garden borders and woodland areas. This easy to grow hardy perennial is practically indestructible - the perfect choice for 'no-fuss' ground cover. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Water Lamium plants regularly throughout summer until fully established. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Dead Nettle in spring to maintain their vigour.
Pot up Lamium plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Dead Nettle plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. 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.

perfect ground cover 2014-01-24

I absolutely love this plant! It is the perfect nature-friendly ground cover for any situation. The bees absolutely love it and are on it from dawn to dusk. It keeps its pretty leaves all year, and it is a food plant for many caterpillars all year. When it has finished flowering, or if it gets too large, it can be cut back hard and it soon regrows. I find it is best not to feed it as you will not get as many flowers.
