Navajo tea also known as greenthread, is a low maintenance perennial that should have a place in any herb garden. Compact and robust plants with cheery gold blooms are perfect for a container garden but equally welcome in a wild-scape or low water landscaping venture. For centuries this plant has been utilized by many Native American tribes of the American Southwest, steeped in a tea and consumed to treat a myriad of ailments resulting from inflammation and anxiety. The flavour is best described as a pleasantly sweet and mildly earthy, rivalling that of camomile, which makes it a good go to for an evening cuppa.

How to Grow Navajo Tea
Sow seeds 0.5cm/ 1/4" deep in pots of pre-moistened seed starting medium. Water in then place pots in a warm area in indirect light. Germination should occur in 14-30 days. Keep pots well watered (misting or bottom watered to avoid damage to tiny seedlings). Once 4+true leaves appear the seedlings can be transplanted to pots or prepared flower bed.
