Yellow Archangel (Galeobdolon luteum)

Yellow Archangel display the characteristic features of the Labiate family, a square stem and tubular flowers.

Found mainly in woodlands, especially woodland edges and rides, it is quite widespread in Dorset but not particularly common. It prefers rich calcareous soils which does limit its range a little.

It flowers in May and June and is out now and at its best.
