Prunella vulgaris 'Magdalena'

selfheal

Native to North America


CHECK AVAILABILITY

A 2019 introduction from Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennials.  Prunella vulgaris was raised as a seedling from open pollinated seed sown from the seed parent, Prunella vulgaris ‘Under the Sea’.

The first flowers are heavy in late spring to early summer, depending on your location, with purple bi-color flowers, but continue to flower through September.  Plants grow just 6 inches tall and spread over 12 inches wide. The plants are semi-evergreen and in the cool of Spring and Autumn, the leaves are a bright green with purple highlights.

Prefers Full Sun to partial shade, and is adaptable to many soil types, but in a dust bowl moisture is definitely required, just like it's native parents.
