Hardy to Zone 10 to 12, will withstand slight frost.  Loss of leaves not necessarily fatal.

(Emblic Myrobalan, Amalaki) (Phyllanthus emblica) Evergreen tree native to India. Amla trees are beautiful, with feathery-leaved branches and a holy presence.  Amla bears a fruit that is among the highest in vitamin C among all fruits worldwide.  Traditional use (Ayurveda): asthma, bronchitis, dysentery, anemia.  Fruits are an ingredient in triphala.  The plant prefers regular soil and water, sun to part shade, and does well at elevation, as long as it isn’t too cold.  They do well in  pots, placed on the patio or in the greenhouse during the summer and brought in for the winter.  Scarify seeds lightly on medium grit sandpaper and sow just subsurface in standard potting soil and keep very warm and in the light until germination, which occurs in 2 to 3 weeks.  Work up in successively larger pots.

      Hello Heidi,
      Yes, these are best given greenhouse conditions in the temperate zones. They germinate and grow well in standard greenhouse environs–minimum temp 55 degrees F. They are solid up into the 100’s, heat doesn’t bother them. One thing to keep in mind is they are dioecious and need both sexes to fruit.

      Hello Hima, Not specifically. US Department of Agriculture destroyed the last shipment from India even though it was pre-approved and accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate. Richo
