Lamium getting a little thuggish

ryseryse_2004May 25, 2013

Each year about this time I have to rip out lots of lamium that is completely growing over hostas and daylilies. But ---- I absolutely love the way it mulches my garden!

I am thinking about planting it around the tall bearded iris to keep the area weed free after the iris bloom. Has anyone used lamium around iris?

Not yet. Wherever you plant it, you must restrain it on a regular basis.
