Today's plant of the Day is Glechoma hederacea L. from the Lamiaceae family, the same family which L. argentatum, a plant I presented a few days ago, belongs to. In German we called it “Gundermann”, in English it's also known as “Creeping Charlie” or “Ground Ivy”.
Glechoma hederacea L. - habitus
Glechoma hederacea L. is a small herb with purple or violet blossoms, that grows in inflorescences with two to five blossoms per node. The leafs are dark green, kidney-shaped and have a long stalk. As with most Lamiaceae they are sitting cross on opposite sides on the shoot, which is a typical character of this family.
