'Herman's Pride' is a marvellous mound of intricately white-marked narrow serrated leaves, with yellow flowers in the middle of spring. It's still sitting, pretty as can be, in the same spot where we put it five years ago. We more recently acquired a plant of the plain species, which looks quite different from 'Herman's Pride': not as sharply serrated, with a softer variegation. It's also a more vigorous plant, suitable as a groundcover.
Note: I renamed this one from Lamiastrum, after taxonomists decided it belongs in the bigger Lamium genus.

Still attractive when bloom is done.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
