Lamium maculatum

Grows to 8 in. high; spreads by rhizomes and stolons to 3 ft. wide. Leaves are 1–3 in. long, green with a central white stripe or zone. Pink or white flowers in late spring and early summer. The following selections bloom from spring to midsummer and make excellent groundcovers for shady spots, nicely lighting up darker garden areas. They are also useful in hanging baskets. They need some grooming to remove old, shabby growth.

‘Anne Greenaway’: Pink flowers and green leaves edged in yellow and striped with silver down the center.

‘Aureum’: Golden foliage with silver center marks and pink flowers. ‘Lemon Frost’ has lime green leaves with a white center line.

‘Beacon Silver’: Pink flowers and green-edged, silvery gray leaves; similar in leaf color are ‘Orchid Frost’ (orchid pink flowers), ‘Purple Dragon’ (purple blooms), ‘Red Nancy’ (deep rosy pink flowers), and ‘White Nancy’ (white blooms).

‘Chequers’: Pink flowers and green leaves with a white center stripe.
