Buy Prunella vulgaris self heal / selfheal: Lovely creeping wildflower with small violet/blue flower spikes

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flower period: early summer to autumn
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a common native wildflower which has long been grown as a herb for medicinal uses, where the leaves reputedly were applied to wounds to promote healing, hence the common name 'self-heal'. A creeping perennial with short straight stemmed spikes of violet/blue flowers, hooded and lipped, flowering throughout the summer into the autumn. As can be the case with wildflowers, the flower colour can be variable, and although this is rare, sometimes the flowers can be pink or white.

  • Garden care: Frequently found in meadows, woodland clearings and pastures it is easy to grow, but it does need a moist soil. Freely self-seeds so deadhead when flowers fade to prevent spreading.
