Dracocephalum imberbe

Dracocephalum imberbe

Common name dragonhead
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers blue-purple (summer)
Size 6-10"
Light sun
Cultural notes well drained soil

Species from central Asia, with crinkly round leaves and purple to blue flowers. Our single seedgrown plant holds its flowers just above the foliage, but fully developed plants should carry them on stems some distance above the leaves.

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