Red Roselle Hisbiscus - ($7 large plants) these plants get huge, suggested spacing is 3 ft between plants and 5 ft between rows. They prefer full sun and regular watering. Harvest the base of the flowers for delicious sweet and sour drink creations!
Yarrow - prefers full sun and well drained soil. Harvest flowers and leaves.
Echinacea / Purple Coneflower - prefers full sun and well drained soil. Harvest roots after 2-3 years. Flowers can also be harvested.
Ashwagandha - an Ayurvedic herb grown for its roots. It is a relative of the tomato and should be grown using similar practices. It does not need to be trellised, but it likes full sun and consistent water and fertility. Susceptible to flea beetles. Harvest roots after the plants have died back in the late fall.
Chamomile - each pot contains a cluster of plants, as they prefer to be clumped together. Consider getting multiple pots if you want to harvest for tea, as each plant does not produce very many flowers.
Catnip - like other mints, this gal will spread across whatever space you give her. Grows well in containers. Prefers partial shade and moist soil, but can tolerate full sun.
Marshmallow - the roots are most commonly used, but the flowering tops can also be harvested. Prefers partial shade and moist soil, but can tolerate full sun.
Lemonbalm - like other mints, this gal will spread across whatever space you give her. Grows well in containers. Prefers partial shade and moist soil, but can tolerate full sun.
Peppermint Hybrid - like other mints, this gal will spread across whatever space you give her. Grows well in containers. Prefers partial shade and moist soil, but can tolerate full sun.
St Johns Wort - one of our native St Johns Wort, though technically considered a noxious weed (like many of our most potent medicinals, ironically). My understanding is that she is only problematic when spreading in cattle pasture. Harvest the unopened buds, flowers and some leaves. Usually flowers in mid-summer.
Motherwort - prefers partial shade and very fertile soil. Harvest the flowering tops. These get quite tall and beautiful! Considered a weed in some places (further north) though I haven't seen them in abundance in the south.
Stinging Nettle - yes, those plants you brush up against on a hike and sting your legs. If you can deal with that then you'll be rewarded in a very abundant food source. Will spread, especially without regular harvesting. Cut back the tops throughout spring and used in place of cooked spinach or dry for tea.
Spilanthes - also known as buzz buttons or toothache plant - prefers full sun and moderately moist soil. An annual in our climate.
