3.5” pot, Leonurus cardiaca

Motherwort is a member of the mint family and while native to Europe it has crossed over the Atlantic and set up life as a weed in some parts of North America. Motherwort will spread if allowed to go to seed. It generally flowers in its second year. 

Motherwort, as suggested by its’ name, is indicated for use with the uterus and with parenthood. Motherwort also has an affinity to the heart, as suggested by part of its latin name “cardiaca.”
