Live Siberian Motherwort Plant
Ships in 100% Biodegradable 4" Coconut Fiber Planter

Siberian Motherwort, also known as Marihuanilla or Honeyweed, is a perennial or annual medicinal herb.  It grows tall, erect, and full of vibrant purple flower spikes. The flowers produced in whorls around the upper half of the stems and it's toothed foliage are highly ornamental and unique. It makes a showstopping hedge and is beloved by pollinators. 

Siberian Motherwort grows wild along the coastal regions of Brazil and Mexico, but is native to China, Mongolia, and (surprise!) Siberia. Medicinally, this plant was traditionally used in Chinese medicine to help alleviate some symptoms of menstruation or for ritual smoking purposes. It's purported effects are comparable to cannabis in that they provide a mellow and relaxed sensation.

This plant does not tolerate frost and can be overwintered indoors.  Siberian Motherwort is of the Leonurus (mint) family of plants and very closely related to two other Sow Exotic favorites; Klip Dagga and Wild Dagga.
