I planted this 2 years ago around an old tree stump and it did spread. It is very vigorous sending out many runners. I have a wooded half acre so this is great as a ground cover. I have had to pull/weed around some ferns that it was encroaching on. Over all though it is a good ground cover for a shady area. Do not plant this thinking it will not spread

this plant is easy to care for and spreads quickly, i have mine in full size although the tag said prefers shade- it grows just fine in sun. its easy to multiply but just burrying clippings.

Positive Weezingreens On Aug 7, 2002, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

When grown in a moist area, this lamium will root from prostrate stems, making it invasive if planted with less aggressive plants. However, a great filler in shady areas and a prolific bloomer.

Spreads slowly, blooms great. Mine is under the shade of a large oak. Tolerates drought.
