As an ornamental herb, its attractive, fuzzy gray foliage can also be used as a bouquet filler.
Horehound tends to thrive in dry, poor soil, so this makes a great herb to dress areas up that may have inadequate conditions. If after a year your Horehound doesn't flower, don't be alarmed. It usually takes this hardy little perennial two years to get full established and start producing tiny purple blooms. A member of the Mint family, it has distinct, wrinkled leaves and a tough fibrous root system.
This herb is still used in soothing lozenge sand cough syrups for congestion and sore throats.
