Prunella Vulgaris is commonly called self-heal, as a reference to its homeopathic use. It is a creeping perennial that spreads by surface and underground runners to form low, dense foliage mats. Upright spikes of hooded flowers rise above the leaves in summer. After bloom, shear off the spent flower spikes to keep the plants loking neat and to prevent seed formation.

Best wishes with your new plants!
