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.

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.

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.
