I Live In Monticello, Kentucky. I Have A Groundcover Plant…

Sue Asked

I live in Monticello, Kentucky. I have a groundcover plant I would like to have identified. It has green oval leaves that are silvery white on the underneath. It blooms white flowers on a 6-8″ stem in the spring. The green leaves are about 1-1/2″ long. Can you help me out?

The Gardener’s Answer

Hello, Sue: For a positive identification I would like to see a picture of your groundcover. You are welcome to send a photo to my e-mail at aoakley@plantkingdom.net. Without seeing a picture I can only speculate what you have growing in your garden. My first thoughts were possibly Tiarella, Lamium (Dead nettle), or pachysandra but none of these fit your exact description. Is this plant growing in the sun or the shade? Does the foliage have smooth edges or are they scalloped or toothed? When it blooms is it a single flower or one stem with multiple flowers on each stem? All of these answers will help me determine what you have but a picture would be even better. Sorry I don’t have an answer for you yet.
