Lance Selfheal (Prunella vulgaris)

Lance Selfheal is a native Minnesota plant that, when not mowed, will flower and provide nectar to butterflies and bumblebees. As the name suggests it’s known for its medicinal use for a variety of ailments. Although it is a member of the mint family, it does not share the same fragrant leaves. With unique, attractive flowers and a later summer blooming period, Lance Selfheal is a great addition to pollinator lawns and gardens.
