Yellow Archangel, Weasel's Snout, Yellow Deadnettle, Lamiastrum galeobdolon, Galeobdolon luteum, Lamium luteum


Lamium galeobdolon (Yellow Archangel) is a stoloniferous trailing perennial forming a loose mat of oval, slender-pointed and serrated leaves, up to 3 in. long (7 cm). In late spring, whorls of 5-6 yellow flowers, each about 3/4 in. long (7-10 cm), arise from the leaf axils. Each tubular, two-lipped flower is adorned with some reddish-brown markings on the lower lip. Yellow Archangel spreads by short underground stolons and can be somewhat invasive where happy. It is best used where allowed to roam freely as it can be difficult to control. A useful plant for filling in shaded areas where little else grows. Semi-evergreen in warm winter climates

  • Grows up to 12-24 in. tall (30-60 cm). Will spread indefinitely.
  • Best in part shade in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Yellow Archangel is a welcomed addition to shaded prairies and meadows and as a groundcover in a woodland garden.
  • Virtually disease and pest free, Yellow Archangel is also deer resistant.
  • Propagate by division in spring
  • Cut back at the end of the season or to tidy up straggly plants.
  • Yellow Archangel has been declared a non-regulated Class B noxious weed in parts of the State of Washington where it cannot now be legally sold.
  • Native to Europe, western Asia.
