The Medicinal Plant Garden

      The Medicinal Plant Garden
was started with a generous donation of plants and expertise from Mom's Head Gardens and the Sonoma County Herb Association. Volunteers have cared for this specialty garden's wide variety of North American, Mediterranean and Asian medicinal herbs throughout its development.

       Many of these herbs are being used to treat illnesses like heart disease, sleep disorders, digestive complaints, skin problems, colds, flu and anxiety. Some boost the immune system and some of those plants are also culinary. Medicinal plants include agrimony, catnip, lemon balm, evening primrose, cramp bark (European cranberry bush), garlic, ginkgo biloba (maidenhair tree), echinacea (purple coneflower), California poppies, clary sage, chives, yarrow, gumplant, thyme, Greek oregano, thyme, comfrey, spotted aloe, motherwort, Siberian ginseng, feverfew, calendula, white horehound, a hawthorn tree, rosemary, lady's mantle, pineapple sage, blue flax, creeping Oregon grape, marshmallow, self-heal, Greek foxglove, valerian, yerba mansa, mullein, Chinese chives (garlic chives), chaste tree, St. John's wort, wood betony and more.
