400 seeds (Approx) Betony Wild Flower Seeds
Betony (Betonia officinalis). The seed is from a UK native sustainable source.
Betony is a perennial plant commonly found growing along hedgerows, wooded areas and by roadsides. It also grows well in the garden and in grassland. Betony produces a purple/red flower on its many flowering stems providing a food source for many bees, including Honeybees and wild bees. Betony is a good companion for Lady’s Bedstraw, Red Campion and Ox-Eye Daisy.
The pink to purple flowers appear from the end of July to September on a long stem. We are currently waiting for a new picture of the plants in flower.
