(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? makes excellent cough drops

What are the cons? a bit too happy reseeder

Review:

vigorous plants that make excellent cough drops and tea for colds. Unless you want it to seed itself everywhere, you'll have to cut the flower tops off. (Stick them in flower bouquets, they're kind of minty looking and make the bouquet smell herby). One or two plants make a heck of a lot of cough drops and tea. I've got at least two dozen volunteer plants....

What are the pros? Leaf shape and texture

What are the cons? Doesn't bloom in zone 6

Review:

I always wondered where old fashioned horehound candy got it's name; now I know! Historically the plant was also dried to make tea to treat colds and coughs. It's got an interesting look, leaves that remind me of crinkly savoy cabbage.

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.
