Plant Description

Hummelo Stachys, or betony, is the 2019 Plant of the Year for the Perennial Plant Association. The bright lavender-pink flowers of Hummelo appear in mid to late summer on 1 1/2' tall leafless stalks, above spreading mounds that eventually make a solid ground cover. It is very easy in full sun or light shade and average soil.  Deer detest it, but pollinators love it and so will you. It's easy, and long lived, plus lovely. 

Available for shipping after March 15. Do not combine with fall shipments.
