betony Interesting Notes

‘Hummelo’ features basal rosettes of ovate, glossy, dark green leaves and tiny, two-lipped, rose-lavender flowers which appear in dense spikes atop mostly leafless flowering stems rising well above the foliage mat to 1.5-2’ tall in summer. Clumps will spread over time to form a dense ground cover. Leaves are evergreen in warm winter climates, but will depreciate considerably in harsh winters. 'Hummelo’ is sometimes sold in commerce as a cultivar of Stachys monieri. -Missouri Botanic Garden
