Tips On Growing Lamiastrum (Archangel) 

Lamiastrum (Archangel)  is a vigorous spreading groundcover native to the Old World.
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.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Lamiastrum galeobdoblon Herman's Pride:

    Planted in fall per directions underneath shady, north side drip line. Also gets neighbors snow from driveway. Very vigorous 1st spring growth with buds about to bloom in late April in Durango, co. I have It protected against deer with wire cage. Interesting foliage. Use the free water from your roof and shade from your house to make this one work in an often neglected area of your garden!

        Very cute plant with wintergreen colored leaves and distinctive yellow/white veining, I'm hoping to use it as groundcover under a smokebush tree. Looks very nice against purple, pink, blue and yellow shades of flowers.

          Q & A

          Suggested Companion Plants:

          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).
