Description :

Although little used in our gardens, this plant has several good qualities and deserves to be better known.

Unlike Stachys byzantina (Lamb's ears), Stachys monieri 'Hummelo' (Alpine betony) produces an attractive, rounded clump of bottle-green foliage with textured leaves which are evergreen or semi-evergreen in winter.

Alpine betony is beautiful both for its leaves and flowers, which appear in mid-summer in long Parma violet-coloured spikes.

Easy to grow in good, well-drained garden soil in the sun or slight shade.

Plant it in the middle of a mixed border together with other pink, mauve or violet flowering plants, such as: Echinacea, Veronica, Sedum 'Matrona', Pennisetum 'Karley 's Rose', Monarda.
