Height: 10-40cm.

Meadow cranesbill (Geranium pratense)
Perennial.
Height: 30-70cm
Flowers: June to September
Geeklet:  The large purple flowers of Meadow cranesbill turn into pointed, bill-like seed pods that give the plant its common name.

Self heal (Prunella vulgaris)
Perennial.

Geeklet: The common name Self heal, sometimes written as Self-heal, refers to the plant having been used as a treatment for wounds and bruises until recent times.

Wild clary (Salvia verbenaca)
Perennial.
Height: 30-90cm
