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 aubrieta, Alyssum saxatile, Iberis gibraltarica, Lychnis viscaria and columbine.

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