Description

Marrubium vulgare White Horehound. Herbaceous perennial native to the American SW and hardy to 10 degrees F. The tea or decoction are traditionally used for treating the common cold and especially coughs--a strong tea will knock almost anything out of your system. If you boil down the tea or decoction, then you end up with a syrupy substance (the soft extract) that can be combined with an equal amount of melted sugar and made into cough lozenges.

  • Plant prefers full sun and dryish, nutrient depleted soils. This is a plant that can literally be killed with love, so allow it to grow on the margins of the garden where water and nutrients grow thin.
  • Scarify seeds and sow in early spring, directly in the garden or in pots. Keep in light until germination, which can take up to 3 weeks.
  • Space about 1 foot apart--they are somewhat diminutive and will grow only about as tall as your knees.

Certified organic, 100 seeds/pkt.
