Chamomile, Roman Plug Flat

Chamomile, Roman Plug Flat

 

Uses:

Chamomile has been taken for centuries as a digestive tonic. It reduces inflammation, stimulates the appetite and aids insomnia. Acts as a diuretic and nerve tonic. Helpful for colitis, diverticulosis, fever, headaches and pain. Good for menstrual cramps. Useful as a mouthwash for minor mouth and gum infections.

This perennial form is also known as Roman chamomile. Excellent groundcover since it grows only 4 to 12 inches in height. The feathery foliage has an apple scent.   Blooms are white, daisy-like flowers with down-turned petals.

Roman chamomile foliage can be chopped and stirred into butter or sour cream that is used to top baked potatoes.

NOTE:
Chamomile is a member of the same plant family as ragweed, asters and chrysanthemums, and people allergic to those plants need to be cautious when using chamomile.

  • USDA Zones: 4 – 9

The subtle and pleasant taste of chives make them an extremely popular food addition!  Fresh chives, finely chopped, are sprinkled over soups, baked potatoes,  stews, and several sauces.  In mid-Summer, they will also put on quite a show with their abundant, fragrant flowers.  Certainly just as well at home in the flower garden as the herb garden.  Perfect year around windowsill plant, too!

In Chinese cooking, the flat leaves of garlic chives are often used the same way as we use regular chives in our cooking:., sprinkled over foods for extra fragrance and decoration. Garlic chives can be substituted by regular chives, but since regular chives have a weaker flavor, it is worthwhile to grow both so you will always have an ample supply of either one for what ever the recipe calls for.

Feverfew has many uses, including preventing migraine headaches in some people.

Feverfew is also said to be effective for fever, irregular menstrual periods, arthritis, a skin disorder called psoriasis, allergies, asthma, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), dizziness, and nausea and vomiting.

Some people use feverfew for difficulty getting pregnant or fathering a child (infertility). It is also used for “tired blood” (anemia), cancer, common cold, earache, liver disease, prevention of miscarriage, muscular tension, bone disorders, swollen feet, diarrhea, upset stomach and intestinal gas.  Feverfew is sometimes applied directly to the gums for toothaches or to the skin to kill germs.

Feverfew is a medicinal herb with a long history of use. The leaves are dried and used as an herbal remedy for migraine headaches. The Feverfew herb contains parthenolide which can relieve mild spasms and is an anti-inflammatory. Some people take it to relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

We make no claims as to the effectiveness of any herbal treatment and the above text is for information only.

As an ornamental,  it is a hardy perennial with deeply cut leaves and lovely daisy-like blooms that measure 3/4 inch across. It is native to Southern Europe, but can be found in many areas of the world. A synonymous botanical name is Tanacetum Parthenium.

Herniaria, Green Carpet

Almost as rugged as grass, this groundcover can take substantial foot traffic.  It also has a deep growing tap root, so is very drought tolerant.  One plant can spread up to 24″.  It has been used as a lawn substitute in some areas.  Many people never notice it flowering because the white blossoms are so tiny and have no petals. But the foliage remains attractive, turning a bronzy red in winter. It’s great in heavy foot traffic areas because without flowers, it doesn’t attract bees.

Excellent in rock gardens and between flagstones in pathways.  Also attractive spilling over walls, out of hanging baskets, and containers.  A great substitute for Creeping Thyme.

Another name for this plant is Rupturewort.  Said by herbalists to be used for urinary problems, since it increases urea and sodium emission without increasing urine flow.

  • USDA Zones: 6 – 10
  • Height: 3 inches
  • Width: 12 – 24 inches
  • Exposure: Full sun to partial shade

This hardy perennial is a very robust grower. Apple Mint has interesting light green leaves. They are somewhat hairy on the upper surface and downy underneath, with serrated edges. They can grow up to 3 feet high, but may be kept lower.

Grow Apple Mint in full sun to light shade. Feed them heavily in late summer to guarantee healthy growth the following spring. Apple Mint will survive in dry soil, but will do much better in moist, fertile ground. Cut back or mow down the Mint patch 2 or 3 times a year to encourage fresh growth. Cut the stems even with the ground and throw out the long, woody stems. Strip off and dry whole leaves for potpourris. Save the top 2 to 3 sets of leaves for fresh use and garnishes. Apple Mint’s fragrance may vary in strength; the mild apple flavor doesn’t sustain well in dried leaves.
