Arnica montana 'Arbo'
Uses: Medicinal Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 5-8)
When to Sow: Spring/Late Summer/Early Fall Ease of Germination: Moderate
Improved variety of the traditional European anti-inflammatory herb used in tinctures and lotions to treat sprains, bruises, burns and joint pain. Developed in Germany for field production, this variety is more uniform and easier to grow than the wild form. Its cultivation is helping to relieve pressures on depleted wild populations. Its flowers have a higher bioactives content compared to the wild form, and in a study tinctures made with flowers were twice as effective in blocking cytokines that cause inflammation. Requires acidic, low-calcareous soils in a cool, sunny location.
