Purple Skullcap is a lovely mounding perennial that only grows to about 6-12 inches tall. It is a drought-tolerant, can handle our heat and needs well-draining soil. It can be trimmed back by half after bloom to keep compact.

Purple Skullcap does well when planted near paths, as a low border, in rock gardens or as a filler plant.
