Prunella vulgaris is an excellent source of nectar! Selfheal plays host to numerous species of butterflies as well as bees, who are perhaps the plants most important visitors. Smaller insects tend to be excluded by a ring of hairs the circle the inside of the flowers. Greatly prized for its medicinal properties, Selfheal has been an apothecary's favourite for many centuries. Its antibiotic attributes have been the subject of an extensive study, and extracts of the plant are still used in ointments and salves. The young foliage will add flavour and texture to a summer salad.
