Very pretty plant, but does not thrive in my shady NJ garden. One plant I bought last year barely survived the winter and is just struggling to make a few leaves. Another one that I planted this spring in a different location initially seemed to be thriving, but was then suddenly decimated by insects. Someone else described this variety as a "wimp". I think that is an apt description. Most lamium wants to run, run, run. The silver-leaved cultivars I have make more leaves than the slugs can eat, but the 'Anne Greenaway' variety seems to be afraid to grow.

As long as you give this plant what it requires, it will thrive.
In a pot it doesn't commit suicide, it gets murdered by either overwatering or underwatering. ;)

It will do fine in full sun IF you get it lots of water in well drained soil.

I bought 3 last fall on a $1 sale.
They were a little beaten up from being in their little pots all summer, but a couple weeks after I planted them in the ground, even in the cool fall weather, they doubled in size and started blooming!
They are up and blooming again this year. We live in an area where the deer eat everything...but they leave Lamiums alone. Mine is planted with Purple St. John's Wort, Grey Owl Junipers, Golden Hakone Grass and under some Skimmias. Unbelievable color combos and literally stops traffic. Easy to divide. LOVE IT!!!

I love this little plant. I have it planted on the east side of my house under some burning bushes and it looks beautiful. It looked a little ragged after its first winter, but then it took right off and has been great ever since.

I planted ten of these across the front walkway of my house, not reading that they prefer the shade! They seem fine, all in bloom, and very attractive for their low growing habit. I loved the color of the leaves and they way the flowers grow underneath the foliage. My house faces West and I am scared that these beauties will die because of my lack of attention to the tag, so I will move them to the side of my home, where there is considerably more shade before the heat of summer!

I would say this is the most beautiful of the deadnettles. But I have tried it two to three times in different...

Yeah, too many examples and pissy things go on that were bad enough at the time, so am not in the mood to rehash this Monday morning!
Yeah plants are always better the second time around. I'm surprised you didn't get more from the chamomile. It's an annual that self seeds like crazy. I only brought one with me to the new place from the apartment, because I know this time next year, there'll be a colony of cham seedlings around this one parent. I kept some of mostly everything in pots so they were easy to move. But some things I had to unearth and repot, and a few really didn't like it, like motherwort, because they were in full bloom when I did it

DALY: Use care when planting around septic drainfields  —
Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
