Dracocephalum argunense

Dracocephalum argunense
Common name dragonhead
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers blue (late spring-summer)
Size 12"
Light sun-part shade

Usually grown as cultivar 'Fuji Blue', our seed came unmarked as to variety, so I'll consider them the plain species. I like all the dragonheads I've managed to grow in our garden, and this one is among the nicer varieties I've coaxed to thrive, with its healthy-looking narrow dark-green leaves and relatively large flowers. So I hope it sticks around – so far, they're blooming in their second year, starting in early June.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
