Lamium maculatum ‘Pink Chablis’ and Sedum sarmentosum
Pink Lamium and Stringy Stonecrop
Lamium is a pretty, easy to grow, quick growing herbaceous perennial that needs part to full shade. It likes moisture but not soggy heavy soil. If you don’t have the soil right it will melt out in Stillwater’s summer heat and humidity. I typically cut it back to stimulate new foliage growth. Here it is planted with a sedum commonly called Stringy Stonecrop or Graveyard Moss. While most sources say it takes full sun I think it really prefers a bit of shade in Stillwater. In my garden in full sun, it lives reliably through the summer but the color bleaches out. Reliable in USDA Zones 3 to 8.
