Self-heal ~ prunella vulgaris

Self-heal (sometimes called “Heal-all”) is common and widely distributed around the world, growing at low to mid elevations. It has been traditionally used for centuries for healing both internal and external bleeding, however testing on the extracts of the plant has not shown any basis for its reputed healing ability. At least in this region it seems to have a much longer blooming season than most wildflowers.
