The Medicinal Plant Garden

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

       Many of these herbs are currently being used to treat illnesses like heart disease, sleep disorders, digestive complaints, skin problems, colds, flu and anxiety. Thanks to scientific research traditional herbs are recognized as a valuable part of Western medicine. Plants include agave, agrimony, lemon balm, European cranberry bush (cramp bark), Great Valley gumplant, ginkgo biloba (maidenhair tree), echinacea (purple coneflower), California poppies, chives, yarrow, Goodwin Creek Grey lavender, French thyme, 'Lime Green' thyme, Greek oregano, comfrey, spotted aloe, motherwort, Siberian ginseng, evening primrose, hyssop, Australian tea tree, feverfew, calendula, white horehound, hawthorn, rosemary, pineapple sage, speedwell, marshmallow, self-heal, foxglove, valerian, yerba mansa, Chinese chives (garlic chives), chaste tree, wood betony, mullein and more.
