Spilanthes, Toothache Plant - Acmella oleracea

 Fun to grow medicinal herb in the Aster family that is an annual in Oregon but can perennialize in warmer climates.  Spilanthes has cylindrical yellow flowers with a red bullseye in the center that are actually called  inflorescence composed of many small flowers. A nice ground cover that grows prostrate and makes a good border plant around other tall perennial herbs. The leaves and flowers are edible but they provide a numbing tingly sensation to the mouth.  Seeds require some light to germinate. Sow into flats about 6 weeks before your last frost.

Packet: (.2 g ≈ 150 seeds)
