Dead Nettle 'Purple Dragon'
Latin Name: Lamium maculatum 'Purple Dragon'
This striking variety is one of the most colorful and vigorous available; plentiful, handsome purple blooms rise above and contrast silvery varigated foliage below; an excellent choice for groundcover or containers
Purple Dragon Spotted Dead Nettle is a dense herbaceous perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.
This is a high maintenance plant that will require regular care and upkeep, and can be pruned at anytime. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
