at Digging Dog
July – August.
Hailing from the rocky crevices and grasslands of the Pyrenees and Alps in Western Europe, this alpine gem makes a winsome addition to any rock garden, stone wall or steps. Quilted leaves—deep green, scalloped and glossy—comprise a tidy semievergreen rosette that produces dainty upright spires of Penstemon-like violet-hued flowers.
Easily cultivated in a well-drained niche, either lean or rich, Dragon’s Mouth can be massed with other low growing perennials such as Marrubium incanum and Dracocephalum to create a tapestry-styled ground cover.
Size: 8"–12" high x 8"–10" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Horminum pyrenaicum (P-1653)
