Stachys monieri hummelo, also known as Alpine Betony is related to Lamb's Tongue (S. lanata) but not visually. An apparently humble plant, it produces, however, an unexpectedly lavish show of wonderfully dense colour. 

This perennial is ideal for the front of a cottage garden border where its clump forming habit makes idea ground cover of attractively crisp, scalloped leaves. From the mound spring upright stems bearing a mass of dense purplish pink flowers, in bloom from early summer to late autumn, which are irresistible to bees.
