Organic Motherwort
An easy to grow and short-lived perennial, Motherwort has striking deeply toothed leaves and dozens of humble flowers that bees and other beneficial insects love. The flowering tops make tea or tincture relieving nervous tension.

As a dye, Motherwort yields a deep forest green.

Motherwort readily self-sows even in poor soil; the basal rosettes are easy to identify and dig up and move/remove before they send up their 3 to 4 foot stalks.
60 days to flower

Leonurus cardiaca

Planting: Motherwort is easy to cultivate. The seed germinates readily whether directly sown in fall or early spring, or started in flats and transplanted. Transplant or thin to 1 foot spacing. Their lush mounds of foliage don’t mind frost.

Seed Saving: Saving Motherwort seed is easy: simply wait for each flower to form a dry ring of seed that readily separates in your hands and toss immediately in the place you want it to grow in the future for the best results.
