The Q&A Archives: Planting Lamium in TX

Question: I'm looking at your new 1997 catelog - p.17 ; the " Lamium - Beacon Silver B-19968. I live in the Dallas Texas area. I want to plant this in a shady corner of my yard, under a dwarf peach tree. (1) How well will this plant perform for my area? (2) Why do you think of my potential location: (A) shade and (B) under a tree (will this cause a problem with the tree?). Your advice is appreciated. Thanks. Ty Albright Dallas, TX

Answer: Lamium should do okay in Texas, even though it tends to like a cooler summer. I'd plants it where it'll receive shade in the afternoon out of the hot summer sun. Planting under a tree should be fine, just don't pile up more than 1-2" of extra topsoil over the tree roots.
