Lamium 'Orchid Frost' Spotted Dead Nettle



Lamium maculatum 'Orchid Frost' has clusters of orchid pink skullcap blooms on spreading mounds of heart-shaped, scalloped foliage that is silver with a deep green edge. 'Orchid Frost' blooms heavily in mid spring and continues sporadically summer to fall. An evergreen, it is a good ground cover whose stems root into the ground where they touch.

Lamium maculatum 'Orchid Frost' prefers partial to full shade and well-drained, average to moist soil. Good drainage is essential. It is drought tolerant once established. A cool season perennial, it does not like heat and humidity. It looks its best early in the season, but 'Orchid Frost' will maintain a decent presence through the summer. It may be cut back fairly hard if foliage becomes unsightly and it will reflush.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
