Likes fairly fertile soil and regular watering. A mint family plant.Take top while still in bloom for the active part.I've never run into this herb while foraging It by report was also used for treatment of rabies! I never got a good dose worked out from either dried or tincture to reduce spasms.Collect seed from half the bed (collect t'other half while flowering for herbal use)Seed pods can be dragged off from still fresh (or dried) tops. Winnow after drying seed.
