Lamium orvala 'Album' (Balm-leaved Red Deadnettle) is a handsome herbaceous perennial forming a neat clump of large, heart-shaped, finely serrated, pale green leaves, up to 6 in. long (15 cm). In late spring to early summer, hooded, creamy-white flowers are produced in multiple whorls around the upper leaf axils. They may continue to bloom sporadically into fall. The foliage remains fresh and good-looking through the growing season as long as there is sufficient soil moisture. A useful plant for shady beds and borders, it can be used in the garden in combination with spring bulbs, ferns and other woodland perennials.

  • Grows up to 26 in. tall (65 cm) and 32 in. wide (80 cm).
  • Best in part shade to full shade in average, medium moisture, humus-rich, well-drained soils. Drought tolerant.
  • Virtually disease and pest free, Balm-leaved Red Deadnettle is also deer resistant. Keep an eye out for slugs and snails.
  • Propagate by division in autumn or early spring
  • Plants can be cut back after flowering, if desired, to encourage fresh, more compact foliar growth.
