(Moldavian Balm) A tall plant with handsome dark green lemon-scented leaves, its appearance is reminiscent of hyssop or lavender, with showy lavender-blue flowers reaching 45cm/18? A nice addition to bee and butterfly gardens, the plant will bloom most of the summer. It has naturalized and grows wild in some Canadian provinces and central and Eastern U.S. states, preferring hillsides and rocky locales. Dragonhead is an easy plant and can be direct-sown into the garden when the soil warms up in the spring. Although it is somewhat bothered by insects and disease, it is tough and will come back over and over. An unusual and potentially breathtaking component in a mixed border,garden, or rock garden, Dragonhead will do best in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil where there is no risk of over-watering. Excellent beeplant.
