I grew this from seed and was going to plant it on the edge of a new bed. Everything I read is that it is a vigorous grower. Will I be sorry and have it forever as a weed! Anyone have experience with it?

It is well behaved over here. I am not sure that I have the same cultivar,but it has not spread in several years.

Good to know! Thanks Caroline. If you had a new yard would you plant it again?

Prunella grows like a weed here, in fact I think it is a weed . This would be the wild form, if there is such a thing,it pops up in the lawn , edge of the woods, and pasture.
Maybe the cultivated form is better behaved.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

It is not aggressive here in zone 3,
and I think the Freelander Blue and other newer cultivars
are even less aggressive than the wild Self Heal.
