Plant Features

Lamium maculatum 'Beacon Silver' is a semi-evergreen groundcover celebrated for its heart-shaped, silver-gray leaves and lavender-pink flowers. Thriving in USDA zones 4-8, it flourishes in partial to full shade, growing 6-8 inches tall and spreading up to 2 feet. This plant adapts to various well-draining soils and tolerates drought, making it a vibrant addition to shady spots with its striking foliage.

Maintenance is straightforward with Beacon Silver; occasional pruning bolsters denser growth, and its resistance to deer and rabbits adds to its appeal. This versatile plant is effective as ground cover, borders, underplanting for shrubs and trees, or even in containers. Additionally, it's attractive to various pollinators, especially bees. The nectar-rich flowers of 'Beacon Silver' provide a critical food source for bees in spring and early summer, supporting local pollinator populations.

In cold winters, Beacon Silver may die back but reliably regrows in spring. Mulching is advised for added winter protection, while its foliage stays evergreen in milder climates.

Looking for a companion plants, these grow well with Beacon Silver Lamium: Ajuga, Hosta, Lungwort, Periwinkle, Sedums, and Violas.

With Beacon Silver, you're choosing not only a visually appealing plant but one that's beneficial to the environment.
