This deadnettle just keeps getting better two years since planting. Nice ground cover and the bees love it! It does very well in the part shade location in my yard, and so far has survived well in the summer heat of Eastern Oregon.

did not survive
Did not survive what was a mild winter. High Country Gardens ships plants that are not fit for planting. Save your money and buy from the local nursery.

About Me Avid Gardener
I would highly recommend this for a shade bed. I have one in heavy dappled shade and one in a little more sun. The shaded one is doing better

Great shade plant
About Me Getting Started
Planted these in a bed that get shade all day and a bit of late afternoon/eve sun. They are doing well but haven't seen big booms yet, but still pretty. Rabbits have left them alone which is a must for plants in my yard!

Very Winter Hardy
from Casper WY
Did well in shade on north side of house. The one I planted on the west side in full sun has been blooming since February thru snow, sleet, rain and wind. Just gets prettier and prettier. Don't know which is prettier the blooms or the foliage. Got this as a gift. Lucky me!

I put this plant on the North side of the house where there is very little sun. It is residing quite nicely with the hostas and looks great.

By Bea the gardener

After a long search, I am very glad to have found Lamium maculatum which grow well in the shade. It is very hardy, easy to care for and can withstand NY winters.

Showy and ever-blooming
from Taos, NM
This is a great groundcover, great for squelching weeds, too. Needs to be divided every few years if trying to contain it to one spot. Very winter hardy. Mine survived a -26 winter.

Hearty and ready to spread!
from Santa Fe, NM
This established well and created excellent coverage from a minimal purchase. Beautiful contrast in a sleepy area of the garden.
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.
