I wish I knew who Herman was to thank him for this fantastic groundcover. Formerly in the genus Lamium, but moved to the monotypic genus Lamiastrum, Lamiastrum galeobdolon 'Herman's Pride' may be a mouthful to pronounce but it's an extremely useful groundcover. Even when not covered for weeks in brilliant canary yellow flowers, its silvery variegated foliage illuminates the shadiest of areas. And it's a no brainer to grow! As a member of the "Mint" family, one would expect this plant to be invasive, but this is not the case. It's a clumper rather than a runner and very well behaved.
My first experience with this gem of a plant was many years ago when my friends Pat and Pam Harper came to spend a weekend here. Pam is a world famous author of gardening books and her specialty is design. Some of her books include:
This long lived ground cover makes a clump about 12" in diameter and gets about 12" tall. It's been hardy in my zone 5 garden for decades and I imagine it's hardy to zone 4.
I've been selling Lamiastrum galeobdolon 'Herman's Pride' in 2" treeband ® pots for $7.50 ea plus $9.00 for UPS. Over the last few years, we've really put some effort into building a large stock so as to be able to reduce the price and I'm pleased to tell you that we have succeeded. The prices shown below include FREE SHIPPING on bareroot plants out of their 2" pots. If you would like to receive the plants undisturbed, in their pots, please add .95¢ per plant to cover the extra cost of shipping soil and pots.
7 for $ 35.00 delivered ($5.00 ea)
