EUGENE, Ore. -- Dead-Nettle got its name because it looks like a stinging nettle. Lamium is the other name people would know it by. It's a great groundcover. It comes in different colors; flowers and leaves are all two-toned colors.

The flowers look like Snapdragon flowers and they attract bumblebee and resist deer.

You can find many varieties of Dead-Nettle at Johnson Brothers Garden Market.
