Hardy to Zones 4 to 10

(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.

      Hi Richard, I do think you’re on the right page–the Arnica chamissonis is adaptable and fast to flower. W planted arnica cham on 3/25/2021 and noticed the first flower today, less than 3 months later. Elevation may be to your advantage in starting ginseng, because it really likes a cold winter. All you can do is try.

    A creeping yellow carpet of pain relief!

    Good germination and transplant survival into average garden soil. Some flowers the first year and then rhizome magic happened during the zone 3 winter. The bed doubled in size by spring and produced a yellow carpet of flowers throughout the summer. Several harvests of flowers were possible, ultimately resulting in a salve that is my “go to” for sore muscles. They survived transplanting in their third year, but weren’t happy about it. I’m hoping for some more rhizome magic this winter.
