Horehound is a mint family relative that gardeners and herbalists have enjoyed since antiquity. Horehound grows best in full sun and requires minimal care.
Perennial. 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. A must for candy making and flavorful, medicinal tea.
