(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.

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.

Review:

I got this because it is a traditional remedy for bronchitis and there are a bunch of recipes for horehound cough drops online. I have found the plant pretty easy to grow from seed. In fact, I have 5 of them! I would advise everyone to treat it like a mint plant: lots of water and part-shade in my zone. It may die down to the ground in the winter because I gave one of the seedlings to a relative and she said it died being left out in the cold whereas the winter here was mild and half my borderline tropical plants didn't spend much time indoors. Still though, it has silvery white leaves and though others have noted it has an odd odor, I haven't noticed any smell at all.
