Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver'


Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver'

The jury is still out on whether this stays or goes in my garden! I dislike the scent of it and it seems to be a perfect shelter for small slugs. Oh, it should not be poking through that Sedum either!

Seems more negatives here, Shirley. It’s a pretty colour though.

Kate, yesterday I spotted a self set one growing in the chipped bark area. I think I will leave that and uproot this one ... sounds mad but that way I can stop it growing through this border.

That makes sense I’d guess, Shirley. It doesn’t sound mad at all.

Dotty, I find it spreads too quickly for my liking and today I noticed several tiny pieces growing a few feet away from it!
