Plant of the Week: Lamium maculatum 'Shell Pink'
The leader of the pack in the Chicago Botanic Gardens trials. This groundcover has very nice shell pink flowers over green foliage with white diamonds in the middle. Flowers are a lighter color and the color doesn't bleed onto the foliage as some of the darker flowered varieties do. Rising to no more than 6", this is a successful groundcover for the shade to partial shade garden.
