Notes for Identification:

Herman's Pride Dead Nettle (Lamiastrum galeobdolon) is a very invasive, rhizomatous and often stoloniferous perennial with erect or creeping stems bearing very broadly ovate or diamond shaped, sometimes heart-shaped, toothed, silver streaked leaves, to 1 1/4 inches or 3 cm long.

It is able to withstand dry conditions very well, and therefore can be grown under trees or in other difficult sites.



Lamiastrum will first form a neat mound of foliage, and will then proceed to spread to fill in the surrounding area. Bright yellow flowers are produced briefly in late spring. This variety was previously known as Lamium galeobdolon.
