Collinsonia canadensis / Horsebalm
Though not the showiest native plant, horsebalm is a great addition to the woodland garden, especially for those interested in herbal medicine, as it has traditionally been used as a diuretic. Even better, the leaves smell like citronella when crushed and make a delightful tea. Horsebalm tolerates dry shade, one of the toughest parts of the garden to fill. Give Horsebalm a try!
