A flowering herb with bright yellow flowers. Chewing the leaves and flowers causes tingling and mouth-numbing for about 15 minutes. This plant has been used for generations to provide pain relief for toothaches.
Planting notes -
The toothache plant is a perennial and should be started up to 6 weeks before the last frost date.
Using a heat mat to germinate the seeds is helpful. Do not cover seeds with dirt until after they sprout.
Once the plant is established it can sprawl up to 2 feet. Toothache grows best in full sun but can tolerate some shade. It needs well-drained soil.
