Sometimes called the “toothache plant,” spilanthes has the powerful effect of numbing the mouth and tongue when the fresh, medicinal flowers are chewed! Known as an excellent immune-stimulant herb and often used as one would echinacea. Also exhibits strong anti-fungal activity as well.  Pick the flowers all summer for an extended window of harvest, and dry for tea or tincture fresh.  A really neat plant to have in the garden that is easy to grow.  Prefers full sun, fertile soil and some moisture, although will grow well in average garden soils as well.  Hardy perennial to Zone 11 and is not cold hardy in our climate, so best grown as an annual.
