The Toothache Plant, also known as Buzz Buttons, Peek-A-Boo, Paracress, and Electric Daisy, is a fascinating herb known for its unique flower buds that have a numbing effect on the mouth when chewed. With its vibrant yellow and red cone-shaped flowers, this perennial herb is not only useful but also adds a splash of color to your garden. The Toothache Plant is perfect for herbal gardens and makes for an interesting conversation piece.

In areas of frost, grow Toothache Plant seeds as annuals. It prefers full sun or partial shade. Start the herb seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last expected frost date. Surface sow and gently press the seed onto the soil, but do not cover. Keep moist and in full to partial sun until germination. Transplant the young plants outside into a prepared site that has had organic compost worked in. Wait until frost danger has passed to plant outside. Once the young plants have several sets of mature leaves, pinch back the stems to encourage a more bushy and compact growth.
