Dracocephalum austriacum

Dracocephalum austriacum
This bushy species has narrow green foliage and heads of large dark inky purple flowers. You can see where the common name 'Dragonhead' comes from.
Dracocephalum austriacum and Iris aphylla
Endangered in the wild but easy in the garden as long as the roots don't get hot and dry (ie. an alpine, rather than a Mediterranean plant). Very special.
