I don't know if I like this plant or not, the purple one in front.
Let's start with "what is it?".

|From what I can tell of the photo, it's Lamium. Some consider it a weedy pest and others cultivate it. Several varieties can be bought in garden departments.|

It is a very healthy Lamium, loved by bees.
Lamium maculatum, or a cultivar of it is the most likely.

| Beautiful plant, hope you tip on the side of 'like it.' |
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

I do have this lamium which is different than my posting. The leaves are quite pointed and dark but I see a resemblance.
Ok. I'll keep it this year

|I agree with the ID of Lamium maculatum and it looks like it could be the cultivar called 'Chequers'. See the pics here:|

|If stores sold pretty plants like that around here, I'd have big patches of that. Those leaves are awesome, whether or not the plant is blooming. I've given up on most plain-green leaf herbaceous perennials, so boring compared to a pretty plant like that. |
