| Lamium maculatum 'Purple Dragon' PP15890 (30)ct Flat
a/k/a Creeping Lamium, Spotted Deadnettle,
Zone 3 to 8.
Full to partial shade, mint family, groundcover.
Mature height is 4 to 8 inches, dense mounding and trailing foliage. Spreads by underground stolons, plus stem nodes may root and develop into new plants. Evergreen in mild regions and herbaceous in cooler zones.
Sizeable, dense terminal spikes of rich purple flowers seem to jump right out of the bright silvery foliage of 'Purple Dragon' PP15890. The deepest purple, most snapdragon-like flowers of any Lamium.
Grows best in moist, well-drained organic soils. Fairly tolerant of heavy clay soils and dry shade once established. Trim or mow back in late winter to stimulate new growth. In spring or early fall, divide clumps and transplant new plants (stem nodes that have rooted).
Tough, low maintenance, sometimes invasive, showy perennial groundcover will brighten up any shady spot and smother any weeds.
Use in containers, as ground cover or bed edging plant. Effective for any shade or woodland garden planting.
