Lamium orvala

Lamium orvala

A great favourite here, forget all you've heard about Dead Nettles; this plant forms neat clumps and excels in heavy to partial shade. In spring, red-tinted, heavily toothed new growth appears, to open out into attractive leaves, which also have bronze autumn colour. The spikes of deadnettle flowers are velvety-brownish-pink with white markings and are often said to resemble orchids.  Forms tidy clumps to 45cm (18") high.
