Lamiastrum galeobdolon-Yellow Archangel

Propagating Lamiastrum or Yellow Archangel should be attempted in the fall by dividing the crown, however it can be very invasive if left alone because of its underground stolon growth habit. It is in the mint family. It yellow blooms can be seen in April through May with variegated leaves especially noticeable in shade gardens. It is a groundcover that loves moisture so it will tolerate humidity and clay soil, but will also do well in full sun. It reaches a height of 2", is deer resistant, and semi-evergreen.
