Edible greens, traditional medicine, and wildlife value!
Self-heal, or heal-all is a classic Northwestern meadow plant -- a cheerful blue-flowering species of damp ditches and pastures, hedgerow understories, rainy coastal bluffs, and forest clearings.
This perennial member of the mint family is very attractive to bumble bees and has a storied history in medieval Europe (where it also occurs), and among Native Americans as a medicinal herb. We like it in salads, or cooked with dandelion and nettle in a wild green "meadow spanakopita."
Spreading growth habit, with stems that will form new roots where they touch the ground. Treat this plant nicely and it will stick around!
