Arnica montana potted plant, organic

$10.00

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9, best at elevation up to 6,000 feet

Clump forming alpine herbaceous perennial native to the the mountains of Central Europe.  Flowers very large, on long, sturdy stalks. This is the official plant.  Traditional usage (TWM): antiinflammatory.  Standard preparations include tincture, homeopathic, oil infusion, salve and cream.  Arnica montana makes sturdy clumps in the native habitat, and should be planted in moist, acid soil in the full sun at about 2 feet between plants, in order to approximate the natural spacing requirements.  We have had some success with growing these at around 2,000 feet elevation, and have received reports of good success from folks living at 8,000 feet in the Rockies. Plant prefers a moist, lime-free, acidic loam soil in part shade or sun.  Does well in rock gardens.  At low elevation, give moist shade.  Space plants 1 foot apart.

Potted plant, Certified organically grown

      OK Mary Beth, The story is that the potted plants started to look rough so we zeroed the inventory. Then nursery staff was smart enough to top-dress all Arnica montana potted plants with pine needles, at which point they all started looking healthy again. So, 30 more plants have been enabled on 5/4/2019 and you can feel free to order. Arnica likes acidic conditions. Richo

      I am surprised that the inventory has run down on these. I will reassess and enable if possible. We would have to grow more to have more!

      Hi Margi,
      This is the first I’ve heard that the inventory on these has run down again. I’m going to wait a bit and see if all orders are satisfied. There may well be more remaining. I’ll try to e-mail you. The Arnica montana are very sensitive, I’m working with some complaints on these, and yet here in the nursery they are doing very well. I don’t think they like disturbance, probably a leftover from high mountain habitat. . .
