Lamium Purple Dragon
Groundcover Smothered in Purple Flowers
Purple Dragon Dead Nettle (LAMIUM maculatum Purple Dragon) is an outstanding selection of nettle that will light up your shady path between your stepping stones with both foliage and flowers.
Dead Nettle loves to grow and spread with abandon – and quickly! If you need a thrilling filler, this is your plant.
The leaves are evergreen and are beautiful to see. They are small and silver with a wide green edge. If all you ever had were the leaves, they would still shine in the shade because of their unique coloration. Thankfully, that’s not all you have! Purple Dragon sends up clusters of deep magenta-purple flowers – larger than any other nettle – from spring to fall.
Purple Dragon Dead Nettle is so easy to grow. It even tolerates dry shade once it gets going. It loves to spread but is easy to keep in bounds with a little bit of trimming. It likes to get a good hard mow-down in late winter, too. It comes back beautifully in the spring to thrill you all year.
If you have a spot that needs a good cover, you will be more than happy with Purple Dragon Dead Nettle. Order your today, and enjoy them year round!
