I have several lamiums and this one is the least most polite. It simply won't compete with the others. I have not found it invasive at all. The leaves are a stunning yellow with some sun. I love it.

Nice bright plant for shade, does not like sun the leaves will burn. Very pretty when in bloom, flowers look to me like miniature hippo mouths. : ) Spreads fast but is not too invasive-great groundcover.

Planted in May, has grown into a nice size in 3 months. I don't expect it to be invasive in z4.
