Ballota-Horehound, False Divinity

Propagating Ballota or False Divinty is done in the spring by digging up the clump and separating the roots and crown, after cutting back the leggy growth in warmer zones where it is evergreen. Its flowers are insignificant, but can be white, pink or purple and blooms in late spring to summer and its leaves are hairy. It will reach a height of 12"-24" , is drought tolerant, and prefers full sun. It may possibly be deer resistant. Its habit reminds me of a weed, but each to their own since its common name seems sophisticated. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
