Plant ID for wildflower

Please can anyone identify this blue wild flower for me?  A friend

gave it to me from out of her country garden but she doesn't know

the name of it. Thank you!

    I don't think that's a UK wildflower.

    Lamiaceae 

    Possibly a teucrium or a dracocephalum.

    Pretty though, I bet it's a hit with the beesimage

  • Is it a type of Bugle?

    I think landgirl might know, she will if it's native.

    Ajuga reptans?  The picture won't enlarge image

    The leaves don't look crinkly enough to me but it's a bit small.

    Might be though

    I think it is Ajuga reptans, Bugle.
