Product Description

Prunella Grandiflora ‘Freelander Blue’

A cultivated variety of wild Prunella or ‘Self Heal’. Selective bred for larger flowers and a longer, more vigorous blooming period than it’s wild form. Flowers from late April and through into late September with intense blue to purple heads of tubular flowers. Fully hardy, the semi-evergreen perennial forms a clumping ground-cover to 15cm. An alpine, therefore makes an ideal specimen for the front of borders or rockery sites. Readily self seeds and spreads. Plant in full sun to part shade with a well drained soil. Deadhead spent flowers to promote blooming.  A native, so highly attractive to pollinators. Low maintenance and easy care.

The young leaves can be added to salads or eaten raw and are said to have healing properties. Traditionally, leaves are applied to stop bleeding wounds – hence the name ‘Self Heal’.
