Silvery ground cover for dry shade.
Our top choice for problem areas in the garden. This ground cover lends beautiful cover under our old holly tree at Fordhook Farm. Perfect for keeping out weeds and highlighting shady corners, the silvery leaves are tidy and pest-free. Through most of the summer, the dense mats are covered with bright, low spikes of lavender-pink. Grows well in dry areas without much care. Can be used as foliage fillers in patio pots.

Wrong pictureI admit, I didnt know the name of the plant I was looking for so I went by the look of the leaves. I was excited to find this plant that I've had before, but when it arrived it was a different than pictured. I now know that the Beacon Silver is all white with very little green NOT the green with silver stripes which is pictured, the picture is the Lamium maculatum 'Chequers'. Disappointed to say the least. The plant did arrive in good shape, just wasn't what I thought I was getting.

Great Ground CoverThis plant arrived looking well. It is a very attractive ground cover and I am hoping it will expand more next year once it's really established.

Silvery leaves offset purple flowersI didn't realize how much I'd love this plant. I bought 3 last Spring and they have thrived in mostly sun and little water. I really like the silvery leaves as all my other plants in that area have bright green leaves. It's a very short plant, so nice for a border.
