(Meadow Arnica)
Arnica chamissonis, commonly called meadow arnica or Chamisso arnica, produces cheerful yellow flowers that resemble the blossoms of dandelions. This perennial wildflower grows natively as far north as Canada, and it thrives in all U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones. Meadow arnica seeds have a good germination rate, and the plant isn't fussy about its growing conditions. Arnica plants will spread via underground rhizomes, so it only takes a few seeds to establish a large patch of flowers.

How to Germinate Arnica Chamissonis
Fill a seed-starting tray with a lime-free potting mix that contains sand and coir or peat moss. Dampen the potting mix with lukewarm water.
2
Sprinkle the meadow arnica seeds on the surface of the potting mix. Gently press the seeds into the mix with your fingers.
3
Set the tray under a bright fluorescent light, or place it on a sunny windowsill.
4
Moisten the potting mix when it starts to feel dry. Do not let the potting mix or arnica seeds dry out completely before germination.
5
Keep the arnica seeds at a temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit or above.
6
Watch for germination in one to three weeks. When seedlings grow large enough to handle, transplant them into individual containers. Keep the seedlings in containers for up to a year before planting in the garden.

Tip

If the meadow arnica seeds don't sprout after three weeks, try putting them in the refrigerator for two to four weeks. The cold may encourage the seeds to sprout.
To collect your own seed from meadow arnica, harvest the flower heads early after they blossom. Lay the flower heads on a tray or screen in a dark, well-ventilated room. Wait for the flowers to dry completely, then collect the seeds.
Medical
About medicinal herbs: Archeological evidence dates the medicinal use of herbs back 60,000 years to the Neanderthals. 85% of the world’s population employ herbs as medicines, and 40% of pharmaceuticals in the U.S. contain plant-derived materials. Fewer than 10% of the 100,000 known higher plant species have been investigated yet for their medicinal components. Interest in traditional herbal home remedies continues to grow. Consult herbals for more detailed information.
As an herb, arnica is usually used topically (on the skin) because it can cause serious side effects when taken by mouth. Oral homeopathic remedies do contain arnica, but they use a diluted form that is not considered dangerous. If you have any question about whether you have the herbal or homeopathic form of arnica, talk to your doctor.
