Prunella (Prunella Grandiflora Light Blue) -  Prunella is one of the longest blooming ground covers in any flower garden, and if the Prunella ground cover seeds are sown in spring, it blooms the first summer! Prunella ground cover plants feature lacy green leaves and clusters of violet-blue whorled blooms. From late spring through the middle of autumn, it sets new bloom clusters, and it just doesn't seem to know when to quit performing! Prunella uses include: ground cover, edging, bedding or container plant.
Prunella flowers attract butterflies and bees. The flower stems can reach up to 10 inches high, held above the 4 - 7 inch foliage of dark green. Prunella ground cover is fast growing reaching 18 inches in width, and it will handle light foot traffic. It is also resistant to rabbits and deer.
Sow Prunella seeds in late winter, indoors. Sow the ground cover seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Lightly cover the Prunella seeds with a fine sprinkling of peat moss. Place in a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 65 - 70F.

Prunella care includes trimming off old flower spikes for a neater appearance and to promote further blooming.
