Heal-All (Selfheal; Woundwort; Carpenter's Herb) (Prunella vulgarus Linnaeus)

The heal-all is of the mint family. Though lawn-mowing has caused the heal-all to evolve where situated to grow low-down, it can rise up in its undisturbed natural setting to be a 12 inch plant. It possesses "hooded violet flowers that form a squarish or oblong head." It will bloom through out the entire season. The heal-all is "regarded as a panacea by North American Indians and Chinese physicians, the latter using the seeds for nervous complaints." (Clevely.)
