Germination Information: Sow indoors under lights in winter or spring or outdoors in spring or summer. Barely cover the seeds, or simply press them into the surface, as light can enhance germination. If no seedlings appear after a few weeks, try placing the pot in a plastic bag and putting it in your refrigerator for about 2 weeks before moving it back to a bright spot at room temperature.

Description

Like the common, green-leaved version, variegated self-heal or heal-all (Prunella vulgaris ‘Variegata’) has small heads of purplish flowers in summer, but its special feature is its cream-splashed foliage. The markings are most noticeable in cool weather; in summer heat, the plant may appear entirely green, but the markings return in fall. Variegated self-heal is not a show-stopper but is worth trying if you like weird weeds or collect anything-but-green plants. I’ve had it around for more than 15 years (originally from Glasshouse Works, I think); it doesn’t seem to be in the trade any more. Variegated self-heal self-sows and comes at least partly true from seed; remove any solid-green seedlings that appear. If you collect seeds to share with friends of seed exchanges, take them from the plants with the showiest markings. Full sun to partial shade. Perennial; Zones 4 to 9.

Collected in 2019. Each packet includes at least 10 seeds.
