Flower head with couple of small purple flowers

My #WildFlowerDay is Selfheal, mixing it up a little with my daily look at a UK #native #WildFlower. Maximum height and spread is 50cm, those little purpley flowers, such a familiar plant yet I’ve never bothered to find out its name. Apparently prefers neutral to calcareous soil but sure I’ve seen it here on acidic West Wales meadows 🤔. You can buy plus from The Wildflower Nursery.

Green leaves and pale purple flowers

What’s the collective noun for Selfheal? Would it make a good ground cover?
