Melittis melissophyllum 'Royal Velvet Distinction' (Royal Velvet Distinction Bastard Balm)

Part Sun to Light ShadeZone: 6-8, guessing 18" tall Origin: England

Open House/Web-Only! Actually, we grew this clumping mint relative for the common name, but it turned out to be a rather cool plant. This native of the UK has fared amazingly well in our hot, humid climate. This particularly attractive compact selection, topped in spring by orchid-like white flowers with a dark purple lip, was selected by Eleonore de Koning of the Netherlands. When not in flower, the 18" clump is composed of fuzzy green, lemon scented foliage. The question of the day is...who in the world would patent a bastard balm??? Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
