Meadow Arnica


This variety of Arnica, which is an indigenous American species, is much easier and more productive to grow in the low elevation herb garden. It yields well from multiple flower stalks and spreads by rhizomes creating a productive patch in a short time. Prefers some moisture and full sun. Laboratory tests have shown this species of Arnica to be medicinally equivalent to Arnica Montana. The delicate yellow daisy-like flowers and leaves are harvested and used as a well respected remedy for any type of trauma to the body. This plant is extremely important to have in the herb garden for basic first aid. Perennial Hardy to zone 5.
