Hummelo Betony has masses of beautiful spikes of rose flowers with lavender overtones rising above the foliage from early to mid summer, which emerge from distinctive purple flower buds, and which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its glossy oval leaves remain emerald green in color throughout the year.

Hummelo Betony is a dense herbaceous evergreen perennial with tall flower stalks held atop a low mound of foliage. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition. This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
