James H. Schutte

Family

Lamiaceae

Botanical Name

LAMIUM maculatum 'Anne Greenaway'

Plant Common Name

Anne Greenway Deadnettle, Spotted Deadnettle

General Description

The outstanding foliage color of 'Anne Greenaway' sets this shade-loving perennial groundcover apart from the rest. It has small, oval, coarsely toothed leaves of medium green that are edged in gold and marked with an ivory stripe down their centers. In late spring to early summer it bears short, upright spikes of pink, two-lipped flowers that attract bees.

Deadnettle grows best in part sun to shade and fertile soil with average drainage. It looks great in mixed shaded borders or rock gardens.
