Another option is the Lamium galeobdolon sometimes referred to as Yellow Archangel.Â I found a picture of it on the NC State University page that discusses the Golden Dead Nettle (which is another name for this plant). This is aÂ perennial that creeps on the ground, produces yellow blooms and likes moist areas. We grow a different species of Lamium at our nursery.Â It lays real flat until it starts to bloom.
Hopefully one of these plants match what you have in your garden.Â If not send me a picture and I will give it another try.
