Leonurus cardiaca - Hardy perennial member of the mint family. This medicinal grows to between 4 and 6 feet and produces small purple flowers much loved by bees. Tough plants need little care once established. Will self-sow, popping up here and there around the garden, but I've not found them to be weedy. Native to Eurasia, where it has a long history of medicinal use. 100+ seeds

Grown by Annapolis Seeds
