A small perennial from Georgia (Russia) and the North Caucasus which has a very mild winter climate.

Has ovate - oblong, mid-dark green, toothed leaves which can either be evergreen or die back to an overwintering bud. Bears small, very pale yellow flowers which are hairy, especially around the mouth (you have to look closely), widely spaced along and around the stem.

Flowers May-July

This is a native of forest edge and rocky places, they need a well-drained, moderately fertile soil in sun or partial shade. They may tolerate full sun in cooler climates. Protect from winter wet.
