Dead Nettle (Lamium maculatum)
There’s nothing “dead” about this beauty; the leaves of its many varieties have a silvery sheen that nearly glows in shade.
‘Ann Greenaway’ has green leaves edged in yellow, with a silver stripe down the center, and pink flowers. ‘Beacon Silver’ has silvery gray leaves with green edges, and pink flowers. ‘White Nancy’ has silvery gray-green leaves with green edges, and white flowers.
Spreading to 3 feet wide, this perennial is great in hanging baskets and as pot edging.
Overwinters in zones A2, A3; 1–11, 14–24, but is grown as a winter annual in zones 12, 13.
