Free-blooming dead nettles enliven difficult places in sun or shade. From spring on, whorls of brightly colored two-lipped flowers bloom abundantly on square stems. The triangular green leaves are splashed with silver, or are silver rimmed or veined with emerald. Dead nettles have unfairly gotten a bad name for being invasive and somewhat weedy, but they are easy to corral and should be cut back and deadheaded regularly. They're fine in partly shaded and shaded places where soil well drained but retains moisture.
