Lamium, Beacon Silver is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong picture I 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ground Cover This 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silvery leaves offset purple flowers I 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.
