*NEW* Motherwort — the Lionhearted

Regular price $3.50 USD

Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) is a medicinal herb that begins as a rosette and stretches out to become a tall, 4ft plant with long spikes of pale pink flowers. Bees love it!

A tincture of the leaves and flowers is commonly used as an herbal heart tonic for those with anxiety and heart palpitations, and to ease menstrual cramping.

Can be brewed as a tea; however, the taste is exceptionally bitter! 

Special Notes: Hardy perennial herb. Prefers part sun to full shade. Tall spikes of pink flowers.  Drought tolerant. Hardy zone 4-9. 

Approximately 100+ seeds per packet.

Seed Starting and Growing: Direct sow in spring or fall. Self-seeds so be sure to cut the flower stalks if you don't want loads next year.

 

About You Grow Girl Seeds:

All of the seeds that I sell were lovingly homegrown and harvested by me, small scale, in my urban garden using organic methods only -- no chemicals or pesticides whatsoever. Tomato varieties are isolated to stay true using the flower bagging method and I test for germination quality. I take special care in choosing varieties that I find unusual, interesting and fabulous, and/or especially suitable for growing in small space gardens.
