Low growing ground cover, self heal has opposite oblong leaves in pairs around the square stem. The dead flower heads were still present. Each flower consists of a two lipped calyx, designed for bee pollination. When in bloom the flowers have are deep purple with lighter hints.
Self-heal grows in open, disturbed areas, healing the land.
