Arnica - Live Plant Frequently Asked Questions

Is Arnica an annual or perennial plant?

Arnica is a perennial plant. It is a resilient herbaceous perennial with a centralized root structure. Once established, arnica plants have a long lifespan and bloom every year during their active growing season.


How much space should be needed to grow Arnica?

Give each Arnica plant ample room to spread out and develop without being crowded. Each plant should have a distance of between 12 and 18 inches (30 and 45 centimeters). This separation ensures adequate airflow and reduces competition for nutrients and sunlight. Allow 18 to 24 inches (45 to 60 centimeters) between each row if you are planting many Arnica plants in a row. This spacing ensures that the plants have adequate room to grow and makes it simple to perform maintenance procedures like watering, weeding, and harvesting.


What zone does Arnica grow in?

Arnica plants (Arnica chamissonis) are typically hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 7. Arnica may need extra protection throughout the winter in Zone 3, where temperatures are extremely low. This protection could take the form of mulching the plant's base to preserve the roots. In Zone 7, where winters are milder, Arnica can thrive more easily. However, it still prefers cooler temperatures and may benefit from partial shade during hot summers.

The flowers should be vibrant yellow and fully developed.


Does Arnica flower or fruit?

Arnica (Arnica chamissonis) primarily produces flowers, not fruit. The flowers of the Arnica plant are the most sought-after part for medicinal use.
