Dicliptera clinopodia is a hardy, shrublet with glossy, dark green leaves. Dense clusters of faintly scented violet or magenta flowers adorn this bush from March to August.
The flowers attract insects and thus birds to the garden. The foliage is browsed by game. Prune regularly to keep neat and flowering.
It is a lovely addition to a semi-shade part of the garden and looks beautiful planted under trees.
