Description

HOPI TEA or GREEN THREAD (Thelesperma filifolium), also known as Navajo Tea, is beautiful member of the aster family. Brilliant 2" open yellow flowers with dark centers atop thin thread-like foliage (hence the name). Native to the American Great Plains, and listed by the Ark of Taste. Has a taproot so it can withstand dry periods but loves a good soak. Plants grow 2' high and bloom March-June and sometimes again in the Fall if you deadhead them. Attracts butterflies in droves. Annual/Short-lived Perennial. 25 Seeds.

MEDICINAL: The Hopi and Navajo used the dried plant to make a tasty dark red tea with the stems and leaves that is a good treatment for urinary tract infection and as an anti-inflammatory and pain relief. To make the tea, harvest the plant as the flower buds open, by cutting it to within 2-3 inches above the soil. Wash and let dry completely. Fold the dried plant into little 4" bundles tied with string and store. Boil a bundle of the herb in 6 cups of water for 5 minutes and serve. Makes a nice aromatic tea -- much like jasmine tea -- that many do not think needs to be sweetened.

OTHER USES: The entire plant can be used as a yellow dye source (not sure what mordant works best).

GROWING TIPS: Prefers neutral to basic pH soils and adaptive to loam, clay, and caliche. Germinates in 2-3 weeks, but 3 weeks cold stratification will enhance germination percentage.
