Lamium orvala


Lamium orvala (Lamium.)

I think I shall move this to the dry bank soon. I have two and they should make good cover over there. Where they are there isn't much room for them to grow and spread. It's not an invasive plant really, but it will need some room to grow. And although pretty, the flowers are hard to see under the large leaves, so it's not a showy plant.

That's a pity the flowers are hidden, thought it was an orchid till I clicked on the photo.

Yes, very orchid-like flowers.

Andrew has a very nice white which I have not seen before, it does get quite large here...

I've moved it now, so it will be fine.

Its lovely HB...much bigger leaves and flowers than normal Lamium. More the size of stinging nettle leaves.
