Title: Stachys monieri in the evening
Post by: Bob_B on July 01, 2021, 03:38:55 pm
A couple of years ago, I happened upon this plant at the local nursery: Stachys monieri "Hummelo", common name Betony albeit I've never heard anyone use its common name. It has done well in my gardens and provides a wonderful source of pollen for the local bees.

While this hasn't been the best year for its flower clumps, the attractive pink-purple-bluish flowers still offer a lot of appeal, especially in the late day light.

Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions, and I appreciate your viewing of this photo.
