Spotted Deadnettle Characteristics
Spotted Deadnettles are a chalky-white mat forming ground cover. These plants will do well in shade with medium moist soils. Moisture should be evenly distributed to prevent bare patches.
There are not many serious diseases or pets, however slugs and snails sometime appear. Root rot is likely in poorly drained soils and bare spots may form if exposed to too much sun and heat. If cover starts to thin out, cut back some of the foliage to stimulate new growth.
Spotted Deadnettles are often planted in small areas for ground cover or as an edger in gardens. They also are a popular choice for hanging baskets or pots as they are unlikely to choke out other flowers.
