Motherwort (Leonurus Cardiaca) -  Motherwort has a squarish stem which is clad in short hairs and is often purplish, especially near the nodes. Motherwort is probably native to the southeastern part of Europe and central Asia where it has been cultivated since ancient times. Its natural habitat is beside roadsides, in vacant fields, waste ground, rubbish dumps and other disturbed areas. Motherwort plants prefer well drained soil and a partly shady location. It is hardy in USDA climate zones 3 - 9.
