Tips On Growing Lamiastrum (Dead-nettle)
Lamiastrum (Dead-nettle) - native to the Old World, this is a vigorous spreading groundcover.
Preferred growing conditions:
- Dead-nettle thrives in a wide range of soils including clay. Plant them in partial to full shade.
- Mulch is not needed. Being a vigorous growing groundcover, they are self-mulching.
- Water regularly the first growing season to establish the plants. In arid western climates regular irrigation is needed in hot weather. In moister climates, additional watering is not needed.
- Deadhead the plants after blooming to keep the plants looking tidy. But they generally will not come back into bloom.
- Fertilize lightly in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost.

Q & A

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
