Arnica montana seeds, Organic

(12 customer reviews)


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, acidic soil in the full sun at 1 to 2 feet between the 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.   To cultivate, use standard flower seed planting method, where the seeds are pressed into spongy potting soil and kept evenly moist and cool (60 to 70 degrees F, no bottom heat) until germination, which occurs in a couple of weeks.  Light dependent germinator.  Work up in pots before transplant.

    Buy Richos "Making Plant Medicine" book


    I was about to ask Richo a question about internal arnica usage and I just remembered I have his book “making plant medicine” which sure enough had the information I was looking for and is a wonderful book but beware he only signed his name in pencil with a heart below on the “growing at-risk medicinal herbs” book, not this one but your experience may differ. Hopefully some more arnica montana seeds/plants will come in stock soon although it appears Arnica, Meadow (Arnica chamissonis) is interchangeable with Arnica montana for its antiinflammatory effects so I may order those seeds for now.
