Day 318: Lamium

“The genus Lamium is comprised of several dozen species of annuals and perennials from Europe to Asia, and the Mediterranean and North Africa. Members of the mint family, these plants have the typical square stems, toothed leaves, and spreading habit. They are mostly grown for their foliage, which can be mottled, frosted, or attractively marked. The flowers are small and 2-lipped, blooming from late spring to summer. Use as a groundcover among plants that can stand the competition, such as shrubs or vigorous perennials. Smaller species can be less invasive and are nice in a rock garden.” To read more click here
