Buy Betonica officinalis 'Hummelo' salvia ( syn Stachys officinalis Hummelo ): A groundcover with glorious summer flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This is a clump-forming perennial, which is mainly grown for the rose-lavender flowers which appear in summer. These flowers are held on upright spikes above the rosettes of dark green leaves and act as a magnet for bees. It provides great groundcover which is ideal for filling gaps at the front of the border.

  • Garden care: Removing the spent flowers will encourage more to form and a light trim after flowering will help keep the plant tidy. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.

Eventual height & spread

Unusual and sturdy


I bought three of these last summer and they survived the winter. Growing strongly in the Spring with tall spikes of pinkish mauve flowers that look a bit like bottle brushes. They didn't need support and look great planted near Artemesia Powys Castle and Salvia Viola Klose.




Good flowering ground cover


Saw this plant growing at Wakehurst Place and was impressed. I am using it as ground cover between Lavatera shrubs in a part shaded border.
