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.
