An attractive perennial for growing in herbaceous or mixed borders, or in thin grass, this handsome plant has striking blue flowers in a spike on the stem and pleasantly aromatic leaves when crushed. Meadow Clary declined before 1950, mainly due to loss of grazing and the resulting smothering by coarser plants, and is still declining, now only found as a native population at 21 locations, mainly in Oxfordshire, the North and South Downs and the Chilterns. Its presence in other areas is probably owing to its introduction through now-popular ‘wild flower seed’ mixes.
It is classified as ‘Near Threatened’ and is specially protected under a 1992 amendment to Schedule 8 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It is an offence to pick, uproot or damage any plants in the wild.
