Deadnettle, yellow archangel (Lamium galeobdolon 'Hermann's Pride')
LAY-mee-um gal-ee-OB-doe-lon vair-ee-eh-GAY-tum
Synonyms:  Galeobdolon luteum
Genus:  Lamium
'Hermann's Pride' is small, but bold. Unlike the rampantly creeping variegated yellow lamium ( Lamium galeobdolon 'Variegatum'), the lamium cultivar ‘Hermann’s Pride’ is a slow-growing, clump-forming treasure that grows like a small bush, beautiful in foliage (jagged, silvery, and green) and flower (brilliant yellow). Masses of flowers appear in late spring to early summer. While some may have trouble controlling this cultivar, it behaves meekly in harsh climates. -Sue Whetten, Regional Picks: Rocky Mountains, Fine Gardening issue #127
Noteworthy Characteristics:  A less aggressive alternative to Lamium galeobdolon 'Variegatum'.
Care:   Grow in moist but well-drained soil. Do not over-water.
Propagation:   By division or stem-cuttings.
Problems:  Downy mildew, powdery mildew, leaf spot, slugs, and snails.
