Lamium (Greek for throat, referring to the shape of the corolla). Labiatae. Dead Nettle. Annual and perennial herbs of the Old World, of which several run wild in this country as weeds and others are cultivated as hardy border plants. Botanically, Lamium is distinguished by a 2-lipped corolla, of which the tube is somewhat longer than the calyx, the upper lip ascending and concave, and the lower one 3-lobed: stamens 4, in 2 pairs, ascending under the upper lip: fls. in axillary or terminal whorls, often rather showy: lvs. opposite, mostly crenatedentate and petiolate: calyx awl-toothed.—Low herbs, of some 40 species in Eu., N. Afr. and Asia. Lamiums are diffuse mostly pubescent or hairy herbs, commonly decumbent at the base and often almost trailing. They are of the easiest culture in any open soil. Useful for rockwork. The cultivated kinds are perennial, and are commonly propagated by division.CH
