Notes:

I’d to buy this colorful always blooming plant; I just don’t know what it’s called.

    This has so many similarities to a common winter annual that I couldn’t resist searching for ornamental Henbit! Spotted Dead Nettle: Lamium maculatum should get us in the ballpark.

    I may be wrong but I believe it’s a perinnial. The yard where it is growing isn’t well maintained which leads me to believe it ‘s been there a while.

    Looks like White Nancy or Beacon Silver lamium

    Indeed it is a perennial Marq but Lamium maculatum has similar leaf and bloom structure to its winter annual cousins henbit and dead nettle. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/pests/weeds/hgic2321.html

    that helps considerably. I’m sure I’ll have to go online to find it because I haven’t seen it in the places where I shop.
