Hardy to Zones 3 to 10
(White Horehound) Herbaceous perennial native in the Mediterranean basin and Asia, having naturalized worldwide, widespread in the American SW. Traditional usage (TWM): cough and sore throat. Plant prefers full sun and dryish, nutrient-depleted soils. This is a plant that can literally be killed with kindness, so allow it to grow on the margins of the garden where water and nutrients grow thin. Scarify seeds lightly on fine grit sandpaper and sow in early spring, directly in the garden or in pots. Barely cover with soil, tamp securely and keep evenly moist until germination. Thin or transplant to 1 foot apart–they are somewhat diminutive and will grow only about as tall as your knees.
