Prunella vulgaris lanceolata - Lance Self Heal

Prunella vulgaris lanceolata is the variety most often found in the wild in our area, this one in the Sierras. Prunella vulgaris lanciolata grows in the moist shady portions of meadows and streambanks. Lance Self Heal will grow with many garden conditions but prefers moist rich soils. I have seen Prunella vulgaris lanceolata most commonly in downright soggy conditions. Lance Self Heal blooms with pink flowers in the Spring but will continue through the Summer if the spent bloom are removed. Prunus vulgaris lanceolata is a native plant great for planting around pond margins and water features. The rootball should be set several inches above the surface of the water.
