(Meadow Arnica) Creeping alpine herbaceous perennial native to the American Mountain West. Traditional usage (TWM): German Commission E has determined that this Meadow Arnica is interchangeable with Arnica montana for its antiinflammatory effects. Arnica chamissonis is less elevation dependent than Arnica montana, and yields well from multiple flower stalks. Planted in loose, acidic loam soil, and given a sunny and moist position, this plant will make a carpet of live roots within a couple of years. Highly florific when happy. Standard flower seed planting method, where the seeds are pressed into spongy potting soil and kept evenly moist and cool until germination, which occurs in a couple of weeks. Work up in pots and plant out to 6 inch spacing.
