Wimpy is not one of the words you would use to describe this improved selection, in fact, robust would better fit the bill once you saw its thick, full foliage that's mostly silver with deep green fringing that forms a low, dense, spreading mat of color in the garden. You'll be amazed at how much more vital this foliage and the plant itself look in comparison to other Lamium. Its robust spikes of deep purple, small, snapdragon-like flowers in June and July will confirm in your mind that this plant is a sun or shade groundcover ready to take on any landscape.
