Yellow Archangel

A month ago I noticed these plants, with distinctive silvery markings on their leaves, sprouting out of the leaf litter in the woods near the ice house.  Although there was no sign if their flowers back then, I was able to tentatively identify them as a cultured variety of yellow archangel (Lamiastrum galeobdolon).  Last week I was able to confirm this identification when I noticed yellow flowers on some of them:
