Is Red Nancy Lamium edible

Zone zone 6a | Anonymous added on August 26, 2016 | Answered

Is Red Nancy Lamium edible like its wild cousin? I am trying to purchase plants that are both ornamental and have another use (such as medicinal or edible). I have been trying to search it out on the internet with no results. Can I assume that if the plant has the same name, such as deadnettle, that it will work the same as the wild with the same name?

Since Lamium Red Nancy is a hybrid I would not grow it as an ornamental edible plant.

Herbs are an excellent way to start with gardening for visual and edible plants.
