Prunella hyssopifolia

Family lamiaceae
Life cycle ?
Flowers purple (late spring-summer)
Size 4-16"
From seed germinate at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

I can't find anything on cultivation of this species. From a German scientific publication: The subtribe Prunellineae within the tribe Mentheae (Lamiaceae) consists of four species within the genus Prunella L. (P. vulgaris, P. grandiflora, P. laciniata, P. hyssopifolia; all other described species have been rejected). From "Cette brunelle se différencie des autres espèces de son genre par la forme de ses feuilles. Ces dernières sont entières et étroites. La brunelle commune est très ressemblante mais ses feuilles sont larges et pétiolées."

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

Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '04 trade. Baggy 70F (22%G, 7d). Subsequent exposure to light, and a cold stage, did not result in additional germination

Probably a warm germinator like others in the genus - the low success rate may be due to the viability of the particular lot.
