Prunella vulgaris L.
Common selfheal
Lamiaceae (Mint Family)

This low, perennial is easily recognized by its erect, many-flowered spikes and associated, overlapping, hairy bracts. The square stem has dense, cylindrical, terminal spikes of purple flowers; the spikes elongate after flowering. It is often considered a weed of lawns and moist shady spots. A form that flowers when only 2 (5 cm) tall has become common in lawns. Its common name derives from wide use as a herbal remedy for throat ailments.
