Golden Dead Nettle (Lamiastrum galeobdolon 'Variegatum') does well in medium to dry soil in part shade. Small yellow blossoms crown the silver and green variegated foliage in late spring. This cultivar grows slowly and has spread little in my zone 7a garden. Can be used as a ground cover for dry shady areas.
