Lamium maculatum 'Anne Greenaway'

LAY-mee-um mak-yew-LAY-tum Audio

‘Anne Greenaway’ infuses the garden with excitement, with its bright chartreuse leaf margins. It grows up to 8 inches tall and 18 inches wide and is topped with lilac-mauve flowers in late spring. The stems root where they touch the soil, so it’s easy to lift and transplant rooted stems to increase your stand. It makes a nice groundcover in a shady garden around ferns, hostas, heucheras, or geraniums.

CareProvide moist, well-drained, organic soil in full to partial shade.
