I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Reading about the plant it says it does back in the summer... this never died back. It's still looking full and in bloom. I'm confused.

Definitely a Lamium.

It looks like Aureum is golden with more sunlight and greener in the shade.

Mine is growing on its own in the perfect spot.

Some folks think of lamium as an undesirable invasive. I like it, and have not found it to be unmanageable. On the other hand, my son (an hour south of me) has a very aggressive form of it that has largely taken over an entire side of his house, so I can see choosing the right cultivar is likely key. His has a larger leaf and yellow flowers, mine all have purple or white flowers. Much better behaved than his...
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

The only kind of plants out here that are invasive are plants that can survive well in a desert dry climate. If I want a plant to back off all I have to do is stop irrigating water to it before it gets to that point.

Just water by hand those I want to live.. the rest will crumple and die.
