Lamium varieties -- need help

crazyforcorelli(z5 utah)June 18, 2009


I'm one of those nerds who likes to know exactly what cultivars I have, but today I bit the bullet and purchased a lamium knowing full well that it didn't have an identifying tag! (Nor did the rest of the stock; in fact, the only identification these had were barcode stickers misidentifying them as petunias.) Of course, now that I've got it home and had no success finding a matching image on the web, I'm going crazy. . . .

This mystery cultivar looks very much like the Ghost variety. However, instead of the yellow/light green/chartreuse band edging each leaf (as on Ghost), these have a darker green edge, often tinged with red.

Any ideas which variety this might be?

Here is a website that shows six different varieties. Perhaps one of the photos or descriptions will fit your Lamium.
