The genus Stachys is like one of those families where every member is exceptional for something different—one bold, another soft, the next strong or perfectly smart—and they all get along with just about everybody. Diverse, sturdy, dependable, calling them mere ground covers is an understatement. Indispensable is more accurate.
Closely resembling Stachys ‘Hummelo’, its larger cousin, this appealing pint-sized version is the perfect solution for a tight spot. The low growing close-knit rosette features wrinkled, scallop-edged shiny dark green leaves that propel countless crowded spikes of vibrant 2-lipped rosy purple flowers all summer long. Beloved by hummingbirds and butterflies, undemanding Dwarf Betony lends color-rich accents along pathways, border edges and steps.
Size: 8" – 10" high x 12" – 15" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
