(Marrubium vulgare) This is the traditional remedy for coughs, having earned its place in the herb garden! Mounds of silvery foliage, around 18 inches tall and somewhat broader, last all season long in most climates. White flowers in season are pretty but not really showy.

What are the pros? Easy and compact

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have used this for years not just for colds...but for flu. I make a tea with honey for my family when they have a sore throat, cold and now this horrible flu this year. My family using Horehound kicked the flu in a day or two while others were sick for weeks. Sore throat...gone. cold..gone and a good night sleep. Its easy to grow, compact and I have no idea what that gentleman was talking about seed pods...they have none. I'm thinking he is mistaking his plants. I have had the same horehound growing now for about six years. Comes back every spring. She is compact and not evasive at all. I'm telling you if you grow one herb for colds, sore throats and flu...this is the one. My dad and sons come to my home for horehound healing when they are sick. I serve up at least two cups a day to those who need it till it has healed them. Don't need a remedy...make a good tea and steep the herb for about ten minutes or so. Can add other herbs too for healing. Don't forget the honey!

What are the pros? Super easy to grow, bees ? it

What are the cons? Seed pods are sticky, invasive

Review:

This plant is super easy to grow. I sowed a row as a hedge divider in one of my raised beds. It took over the bed! I hack it all the way back to the ground a couple of times a year and weed it back indiscriminately, but it always pops right back up. Lovely, licorice- anise like aroma and pretty little white flowers that my local bees are obsessed with. The seed pods are so sticky that I have to keep my dogs out of it, or I have to cut them out of the fur. If you are interested in herbal remedies this is a great one for respiratory ailments.

What are the pros? Takes care of itself

What are the cons? Powdery Mildew magnet

Review:

A very hardy plant that takes care of itself, but be warned folks, many people will confuse the scent of horehound with MARIJUANA!! Which can get very irritating.

Review:

Started this herb from seed. Of the 15 or so other varieties I tried last year, Horehound and Feverfew were the only ones to survive. I used newspaper pots and home-made potting soil (compost roasted in the oven until sterilized). Simply planted the seeds in the pots, watered occasionally, and kept them under a grow light for the winter. By spring, these little guys were quite bushy and ready to go in the ground. They are beautiful, silvery, little plants. Biggest surprise of all is how well they handled my poor transplanting job. My soil is very rocky, and I put them on a steep hill where water never holds long. I could barely get them in the ground, but they are still doing well a year later. They overwinter very well here in Central Virginia in full shade. I let the leaves fall and cover them for 'warmth'. Feverfew is in the same bed with the Horehound and is doing just as well in exactly the same situation. Dozens of happy, healthy plants against all odds. Love them!

What are the pros? Easy to grow if you want it

What are the cons? Out of control on my property

Review:

This was on my property when I moved here. It is aromatic. Not unpleasant. The seed pods are sticky and get in my dogs' coats. I surely need to search for that cough remedy mentioned in another review! I do think this is pretty, but I'd like to be rid of most of it. We're in high desert and this grows everywhere, even in the roadsides, even during drought.
