The name means Ďdragonís headí. 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 imberbe is a Dragon's head that makes good clumps in a rock garden, with bright purple, two-lipped flowers over vigorous green foliage. Originally from Siberia to Uzbekistan
