Description

Selfheal is a low-growing, creeping plant that likes the short turf of grasslands, roadside verges or even lawns. Its clusters of violet flowers appear in summer. Bluish or violet flowers up to 30cm tall in dense, oblong clusters on the top of its stems. The purple-tinged seed heads remain after flowering. Also, a nectar source for bees and wasps.  As its common name suggests, selfheal has a long tradition of being used in herbal medicine for everything from stopping bleeding and healing wounds, to treating heart disease and sore throats.
