Leonurus cardiaca

Common name motherwort
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white (summer)
Size 5-6 ft
Light full sun-part shade
Cultural notes not fussy
From seed self-seeds in our garden

Attractive lush dark green foliage. Flowers in tall, prickly spikes. Good for the wilder part of the garden - we keep it in the area on the back side of the back yard island where taller tough guy plants duke it out. It's a medicinal herb, too.

Leonurus cardiaca

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
