From a distance this spreading beauty looks almost pure white, a color that will definitely get your attention especially in a shady spot. As you come closer to take a look you'll see that it is actually a series of variegated silvery-white leaves with green margins grouped tightly along trailing stems. 'White Nancy' forms a perfectly beautiful groundcover that spreads by stolons and is aggressive while not being invasive. It's one of the easiest, most rewarding long season color plants for partial to full shade you can grow and even has a pleasing, mint-like, pure white bloom that first appears in late May and early June. It tolerate virtually any well-drained soil and will take a shearing if you feel it is misshapen or growing too aggressively, and come back even stronger and more beautiful than before. 'White Nancy' is extremely hardy and deer resistant so feel free to plant it in large groups or even in mixed containers for a shady patio or deck that could use its great color and great vigor.
