Prunella vulgaris lanceolata - Californian Self-heal

Prunella vulgaris lanceolata dark purple
Not really what one expects of Self-heal - a familiar meadow and lawn weed in this country. According to Dennis this is a Californian form with unusually large rich purple flowers in dark tinted bracts. Very nice indeed and ideal I should think as part of the kind of flowering lawn being advocated by Lionel Smith of Reading University at the moment. Easy almost anywhere.
