As long as you give this plant what it requires, it will thrive.
In a pot it doesn't commit suicide, it gets murdered by either overwatering or underwatering. ;)
It will do fine in full sun IF you get it lots of water in well drained soil.
I bought 3 last fall on a $1 sale.
They were a little beaten up from being in their little pots all summer, but a couple weeks after I planted them in the ground, even in the cool fall weather, they doubled in size and started blooming!
They are up and blooming again this year. We live in an area where the deer eat everything...but they leave Lamiums alone. Mine is planted with Purple St. John's Wort, Grey Owl Junipers, Golden Hakone Grass and under some Skimmias. Unbelievable color combos and literally stops traffic. Easy to divide. LOVE IT!!!

I love this little plant. I have it planted on the east side of my house under some burning bushes and it looks beautiful. It looked a little ragged after its first winter, but then it took right off and has been great ever since.

I planted ten of these across the front walkway of my house, not reading that they prefer the shade! They seem fine, all in bloom, and very attractive for their low growing habit. I loved the color of the leaves and they way the flowers grow underneath the foliage. My house faces West and I am scared that these beauties will die because of my lack of attention to the tag, so I will move them to the side of my home, where there is considerably more shade before the heat of summer!

I would say this is the most beautiful of the deadnettles. But I have tried it two to three times in different locations and every time it didn't survive the winter - more of a wimp than other deadnettles.

I believe another name for this plant is 'Anne Greenway'.

I tried growing this plant 3 different times. First two plants committed suicide in their pots, the third died in the ground 6 months after planted.

Split 8 qt boxes under a well-established maple in mid summer but lost most due to drought over vacation. Several plants survived through the winter, surprised me in spring and over two years have grown into 3'x3' patches. Stunning purple flowers mid-spring into summer and variegation adds interest. Part sun/shade in this garden.
