About: Hedeoma pulegiodies Plant, a member of the Lamiaceae family, is a low-growing herbaceous plant native to North America. Known for its aromatic qualities, this herb has a rich history of traditional uses and culinary applications. Vermi Organics is pleased to offer the American Pennyroyal, inviting enthusiasts to explore its multifaceted features and embrace the essence of nature's herbal diversity.

Benefits: Beyond its aromatic allure, Hedeoma pulegiodies Plant carries several benefits. Traditionally, it has been utilized for its potential insect-repelling properties, making it a valuable addition to outdoor spaces. Additionally, some herbal traditions associate the plant with digestive and respiratory health benefits, although it's crucial to seek professional advice before using it for medicinal purposes.

Type of Plant (Indoor or Outdoor): The American Pennyroyal is ideally suited for outdoor cultivation, thriving in garden beds, containers, or as a ground cover. Its preference for well-drained soil and exposure to sunlight makes it a perfect addition to herb gardens, rock gardens, or as a border plant. While it flourishes in outdoor environments, its aromatic nature makes it less suitable for indoor cultivation.

Care: Caring for Hedeoma pulegioides involves providing it with the right conditions for optimal growth. Plant it in well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Ensure the location receives full to partial sunlight for a minimum of 6 hours a day. The American Pennyroyal appreciates regular watering, particularly during dry spells, but is relatively drought-tolerant once established.

Common Names: Hedeoma pulegioides is commonly known by various names that reflect its heritage and uses. Apart from "American Pennyroyal," it is also referred to as "Pudding Grass," "Mosquito Plant," and "Squaw Mint."

  • Flowers: Delicate lavender-hued flowers bloom in summer, arranged in whorls along the stems, adding a touch of color to the garden.
  • Aroma: The foliage releases a pleasant minty aroma, making it a favorite among gardeners for its aromatic qualities.

The low-growing habit and whorls of lavender flowers make it a visually appealing ground cover or border plant.
