Forms a nice full low-growing narrow-leaved pad. My original research for this species had turned up examples with pink flowers, so I was surprised to see the creamy white ones when my second-year plants started blooming this June. But then I found some white ones on the internet as well, so I guess the species ID is OK. I hoped this one would last longer in our garden than Prunella grandiflora, which has acted like a biennial on several occasions - but this one too, after blooming, proceeded to die off in late summer of its second year.

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