(2 customer reviews)

$3.95

Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)

Annual maturing in 100 days.

(Moldavian Balm, Moldavian Dragon’s Head) Native to Europe. 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 can be started by direct seeding in the garden. Easy germination, fast growth, and mintily tasty leaves typify this oldtime plant.  Traditional usage (TWM): common cold.  Plant prefers full sun to part shade, water, average soil. It’s always a great joy to grow this plant.

      Hi Monique,
      Best in early flower, the plant gets a bit coarse if you let it go too long. Best to strip leaf and flower and dry for tea/spice. r

    Lovely tea herb

    Ann

    This was fun to grow. The more I picked tender blooming stems, the more it grew and bloomed. It made a lovely herbal tea mixed with some fermented blackberry and fireweed leaves.
