Short spikes of lavender flowers top the mounded, dark green, glossy foliage of Hummelo alpine betony (Stachys officinalis 'Hummelo') throughout the summer. This cultivar is a butterfly magnet whose flowers are also noted for long vase life indoors. This is a reliable perennial in the Chicago area if planted in locations that don't stay waterlogged in winter.
