Monday's Flower - Lamium

Real Estate Broker/Owner with JFIVE Home Realty LLC | 845-758-6842|162 Deer Run Rd Red Hook NY 12571 10491201242

What is Lamium?  That would be a question I would ask.  I love gardening but never took the time to learn all the names of plants.

I have been getting some positive response to this series, so now I am forced to learn the names of the plants and flowers to help you better identify the flower I am featuring.

Lamium is a ground cover and comes in many varieties.  I have had this plant in my garden for many years.  This was given to me by a  homeowner whose house I was selling, because during the process we discovered we shared a passion for gardening.

As you can see it has lovely greenish silver leaves, there is also a Lamium flower but my plant is not in bloom at this time.

This plant is perfect for a shady area, a spot where you might be having trouble growing anything.   I have grown it under cedar trees.   I just started a new section where I planted Lamium and in between each plant I also planted low growing blue fescue grass. I am sure it should look pretty but I will have to wait and see.



What lesson can you learn from the Lamium?

In your business you might start out small but with the right tools and circumstances you will grow your business; be tenacious.  Yes a small piece of Lamium will keep growing, and will fill l in that troubled spot in the shady part of your garden.


Have a great week and happy planting.

I love this series.  I could use some Lamium. It does look like a great ground cover.

joan and George it is a lovely ground cover needing very little attention,  I usually pay attention to it only when I want to move a piece of it to another area.

George this is a great choice for a shady area.

That Lamium looks delicate and such a pretty shade of green. It was fun to see how you tied the plant to daily business; keep up the good work Jennifer.

This is a good theme for a series. Many of us need to learn more about the plants and flowers that will work best in our home community.

Darest I say I think they're an attractive plant. But many here in the Pacific Northwest would disagree with me because there are a few varieties here that are considered to be foreign invading noxious weeds. I didn't know their name, so thanks for that. When you take a walk in the woods around here they do love the shade. Not all varieties are considered invaders, but I'm not up on the subject enough to know the differences. But I recognize those leaves from your photo. Enjoyed your post. Thanks.

Jennifer, That is a really pretty plant and I wouldn't mind having it in my yard too. I wonder if it will grow in Tennessee.

Jennifer, I am not much of a gardener and absolutely do not have a green thumb. Have a feeling your series might help me. Hahahaha.

Jennifer, I share your love of gardening and how you tie it to your real estate business. I don't have much shade in my yard so not sure this would be a good choice for me. I wonder if Lamium is also know as Snow on the Mountain.
