Description

This ubiquitous plant has puzzled me for a long time, and turns out to be Prunella vulgaris or Self-heal, a plant with many medicinal properties that grows on every continent. This low-growing plant with bright purple flowers, almost 1" across, is in the mint family. Here it's growing at 580' along the path beside Lake Crescent.
