Horminum pyrenaicum

Common name dragon's mouth
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5)
Flowers violet (summer)
Size 8-12"
Light sun-light shade
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Low-growing perennial from alpine regions in western Europe. Quilted glossy leaves, spires lined along one side with violet flowers, sort of like a cross between catmint and penstemon. I have just one seedling, and am not so sure it will like our hot and humid climate.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
