Self Heal
Self Heal

  • Price: $7.00

A perennial of the mint family, it grows to 2-3 feet tall. It usually appears in clumps, since it reproduces by runners as well as seeds. Small Purple flowers grow in compact spikes at the tops of the stems. It is a perennial herb found throughout Europe, Asia, Japan and the USA. Self heal is easy to grow in temperate and warm conditions. It likes a sunny position.

Comments Warnings : It is more of a medicinal plant than a culinary one but leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. They can also be used in salads, soups, stews. Somewhat bitter due to the presence of tannin in the leaves, though this can be removed by washing the leaves. See link PFAF for details of medicnal uses.
