Rosaceae (Rose Family)
Europe, especially common in Britain.
2ft tall and wide. To 3ft tall in bloom, produces slender spikes of yellow flowers from June to September.
Full sun to part shade, well-drained soil. Will tolerate heavy clay and a variety of conditions.
The seeds can be moderately difficult to germinate, or have spotty germination. They do well sown directly in place in the fall, just as the plant would do self-seeding. They can also be direct sown in spring, or started in flats indoors.
Easy to care for. Plants are herbaceous and will die back for the winter and so can be cut back to the ground in the fall time. They will re-grow in the spring. Not a prolific self-seeder, but will sire the occasional seedling if left to go to seed in the garden.
The aerial parts can be harvested when the plants are in bloom. The plants can be cut back during harvesting to 3 or 4 inches above the ground.
Not considered a culinary herb. Leaves are too astringent to be very palatable, but the flowers are more edible and can be added to salads.
Astringent tonic and mild bitter to improve general digestion, liver health, and the assimilation of nutrients.
Attracts Pollinators, Deer Resistant, Apothecary Garden, Container Garden, Drought Tolerant, Low Maintenance.
