Dead Nettle ‘Purple Dragon’


Out of stock

SKU: 103548 Categories: ,


This outstanding selection forms a spreading patch of small silver leaves with a wide green edge. Clusters of deep magenta-purple flowers are larger than all other varieties, appearing in spring then continuing off and on until fall. Fairly tolerant of dry shade, once established. Trim or mow back hard in late winter. Evergreen. It is best to cut this plant back after the first bloom to promote compact growth. Plant in a well-drained soil and do not allow it to dry out. Use lamium in hanging baskets, in mixed containers, trailing over walls or as an edger, but spread must be controlled.
