Dracocephalum tanguticum

Dracocphalum tanguticum is a rare dragonhead species with deep blue, hooded flowers in late spring to early summer. I'm very fond of it because it blooms at a time when there are few other flowers in the garden. 

Dracocephalum tanguticum looks great with other early bloomers like Alyssum saxatile, Aquilegia caerulea, Iberis gibraltarica, and Lychnis viscaria.

Also known as Dracocephalum tangutica or Dragon's Head. It's similar to Dracocephalum ruyschiana. Hardy perennial in zones 4-9.

height 12"
