Balm, Moldavian (Dracocephalum moldavica), organic

(5 customer reviews)


Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)

Annual maturing in 100 days.

(Moldavian Balm, Moldavian Dragon’s Head) Native to a scattered distribution from eastern Europe to east Asia.  Plant grows to about 1 foot tall. The flowers are very long lasting, bright purple, proportionally large to the plant, and shaped outrageously like the toothed head of a dragon. This is a superior tea herb that is best started by direct seeding in the spring garden. Easy germination (10 to 15 days), fast growth (flowers midsummer), and lemony, tasty leaves typify this old-time plant.  Traditional usage (TWM): common cold.  Plant prefers full sun to part shade, water, average, well-drained garden soil. It’s always a great joy to grow this plant. Plant prefers a sunny position in the garden and has a mild appetite for compost and water.  Similar size and cultural requirements to basil.  Space plants 6 inches to 1 foot apart.
