‘White Nancy’


Dead nettle,

zones 3-9

This is a mat forming shade loving groundcover. White Nancy produces milky white clusters of small, hooded flowers in late spring and sporadically thru the summer. Stunning silvery leaves with narrow green margins make this an eye-catching groundcover even when not in bloom. A breath-taking display in an all-white garden. A great performer with proven reliability. Attractive foliage. Avoid dry soil with full sun. Best selections for the coldest areas. Easily grown in most well-drained garden soils. Once established they can tolerate somewhat drier conditions.     Vigorous grower but non invasive. Shear back by ½  if it gets leggy or cut back to new leaves at base of plant in midsummer. Can be divided as needed in spring or fall. Will self seed but seedlings may not grow true to parent
