The name means ‘dragon’s head’. If you have a vivid imagination, you might just make the connection on a clear day. The individual flowers are typical labiates, with a broad lip, and above that a hood, and can be quite showy in some species. The flowers are in whorls, with the leaves, and as they open in sequence up the stems they give colour for a good time.
|Dracocephalum forrestii is a fine member of its genus, with spikes of substantial, deep purplish blue flowers above the finely dissected leaves, which are hairy underneath.|
