Product of Thrills,
A cross between you and he –
A mixture of purple and white –
Pink baby makes three!
Does anyone remember Thrills gum – the one that tastes like soap? Well, these lamiums (spotted dead-nettles) always remind me of that product because they are exactly the Thrills shade of purple. I bought a few plants and the next year, some cropped up self-seeded, blooming white! Sometimes seed doesn’t always run ‘true’ and it reverts to an earlier strain. By the year after that, the purple and white had crossed – and now I have pink as well! Some garden surprises are good ones…
