Spotted dead nettle edible

An attractive and popular
Lamium maculatum 'White Nancy' stays relatively short -- often less than a foot tall -- but its attractive variegated foliage spreads out to three times its height. 'White Nancy' has white blooms, but other cultivars offer blooms with different colors. Spotted dead nettles are generally grown for their silver leaves, however, not their flowers. They are deer-resistant and slightly invasive.

Uses for Spotted Dead Nettles in Landscape Design:

Spotted dead nettles are popular ground covers for shady areas. They are especially helpful for shady areas that have dry soil and/or where deer control is an issue. The silvery foliage of these shade plants makes them a good fit for landscape designs with creative color schemes. For color-scheme ideas, please see my gallery of flower photos.

Origin of the Name "Dead Nettles":

According to Monrovia Nursery, the unusual common name "dead nettle" alludes to the fact that, while it resembles stinging nettles, "the stingers are dead" on , rendering it harmless.

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.
