Detailed Description and Benefits

Botany: Arnica Montana is a hardy perennial plant, valued for its resilience and natural beauty. Its leaves, a deep, velvety green, spread out in a basal rosette, while its erect stems can reach up to 60 cm in height, bearing bright yellow flowers resembling small daisies. Flowering takes place between June and August, during which the flowers unfurl in solitary flower heads at the top of the stems, attracting pollinators and admirers. The fruits, achenes equipped with a feathery tuft, ensure the dispersal of the seeds by the wind from the end of summer.

The benefits of Arnica Montana for humans are multiple and well documented, particularly for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It is widely used in ointments and gels to relieve bruises, muscle and joint pain. In homeopathy, Arnica helps treat shock, trauma and muscle fatigue. For animals, especially horses, Arnica is useful in topical preparations to soothe sore muscles and speed recovery after strenuous exercise. However, its use must be guided by veterinary knowledge to avoid any risks linked to its potential toxicity when ingested.

How to cultivate it? Growing guide

Sowing Period

Arnica Montana is ideally sown in spring, between March and April, when the risk of frost has passed. Sowing in autumn can also be considered in regions with mild winters.

Flowering Period

Arnica blooms from June to August, offering golden yellow flowers that captivate the eye and attract pollinators.

Temperature and Hardiness

Arnica Montana is a hardy plant, capable of withstanding temperatures down to -20°C. It is well adapted to mountain climates and tolerates climatic variations.


This plant prefers a sunny exposure to partial shade. A location that receives direct sunlight for a few hours a day is ideal for abundant flowering.


Arnica requires well-drained soil and does not like excess water. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.

Pests and Diseases

Arnica is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, it can sometimes be affected by slugs and aphids. Use biological control methods to control them if necessary.

Germination Time

Arnica seeds usually germinate within 2 to 4 weeks after sowing. Soil kept moist and a stable temperature promotes successful germination.

To ensure the best growth, enrich the soil with well-decomposed compost before sowing and ensure that the chosen location is not subject to water stagnation. Light mulching can help maintain soil moisture and protect young plants from temperature fluctuations. Follow these tips, and your Arnica Montana will thrive, bringing a touch of natural beauty and well-being to your garden.
