Description

The mountain arnica, also called wolf's bane, is both an alpine plant and a medicinal plant. It is perennial and reaches a height of about 60cm. Its dark yellow flowers, which appear from June to August, smell pleasantly. In its original
distribution area at high altitudes, it becomes increasingly rare, it is therefore protected in many European countries.

Arnica is certainly one of the most famous homoeopathic remedies for muscle injuries or bruises. Academic medinice and pharmacology also values ??the healing power of arnica blossoms in the same context, albeit only for external use. Ingesting it is not advisable because all parts of the plant are toxic. In ointments and tinctures, however, it can fully exert its anti-inflammatory effect, and in other preparations too it is an enormously versatile medicinal plant.

In the Middle Ages, Arnica was considered a magical plant which protects against lightning, storms and evil spells, as well as for banishing crop demons, wolves and protection against crop failure.

Seed, content approx. 100 mountain arnica seeds

Sowing & Cultivation

The cultivation of the mountain arnica is comparatively demanding, since it has very concrete demands in terms of soil, light and nutrient composition. Preculture in acidic substrate is necessary. Seeds should not be covered with soil, since they need light to germinate.

After the last frosts, the young plants can be planted out in a humid, nutrient-poor and completely lime-free soil in a sunny location. The soil should always remain moist, but waterlogging must be avoided.
