White Horehound (Marrubium vulgare) is an herbaceous perennial herb, native to Europe, and Northern Africa and Asia. Also known as Common Horehound.
It has grayish green leaves, and an unusual white stem (therefore the name "White" horehound). It has white flowers which are born on the stems, above the leaves.
This makes a great border plant.
Traditionally used to make old fashioned horehound candy (which can be made at home using the fresh leaves). Herbalists have long used horehound leaves - either fresh or dried - in tea, syrup or tinctures. Its uses have included relief for coughs and other respiratory problems.

Start your horehound indoors, 6-8 weeks before your last frost date. Horehound is a very hardy plant, and does well even in poor soils. Can tolerate both sun and shade conditions. Mine is growing under a large black walnut tree, and does very well.
Once established does not require any additional care.
Will grow up to two feet tall, and can spread out several feet from where it emerges from the earth.
