Drncunculus vulgaris

The species described are erect, but some others are diffuse : uppermost lvs. like the lower ones or reduced to bracts. Very closely allied to Nepeta. Sandy loam, moderately rich, and a rather moist, partially shaded situation will suit these plants best. In a sunny, dry border they are never very
showy; the fls. are of short duration, and are seldom at their best except in very moist seasons.
