Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Melittis 'Royal Velvet Distinction' is an easy to grow, hardy plant for those damp shady corners of the garden. The aromatic foliage is honey-scented and, along with the orchid-like pink and white flowers, attracts bees and butterflies to the garden. Melittis is very easy to establish, and makes robust ground cover for woodland gardens and shaded borders. Height: 70cm (28"). Spread: 50cm (20").
