Horminum pyrenaicum

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.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: left fence nursery area
