Spotted Dead Nettle Ground Cover

‘Pink Chablis’ spotted deadnettle makes a pleasant ground cover for a shady spot with its white variegated leaves and pink flowers. Its long blooming season from late spring to mid-summer makes it a stand out in a shade garden and it does not even require deadheading to keep it flowering. Give it evenly moist, well-drained soil in partial shade and the plants will thrive until heat and humidity roll in when they may “melt out”. Warm nights may make ‘Pink Chablis’ leggy but it will return to its original compact form if cut back.

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.
