Neutral Baa On Aug 31, 2002, Baa wrote:

A perennial from Europe and Asia.

Has ovate to lance shaped, mid to deep green, deeply veined leaves. Bears hooded, violet, purple, pink or white flowers with coloured bracts on many flowered spikes.

Flowers June-Spetember

Loves a well-drained, fertile soil in sun or light shade. It doesn't like to dry out completely nor does it tolerate a soil that lies wet so keep an eye on the watering.
