$15.00

Note:  Current stock are 2-year-olds in small pots.

Family:  Euphorb (Euphorbiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 10 to 12, will withstand slight frost.  Does well in potted culture.  Amla sometimes loses its leaves which is usually a temporary occurrence.

(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.  Space trees 10 to 15 feet apart.

Potted tree,  Certified Organically Grown

      Hello Vrushali,
      Amla does lose its leaves and as long as reasonable conditions are maintained will regain its leaves. I have several in full leaf right now and several that have lost their laeves. There seems to be no particular stress factor that causes this phenomenon. In your zone the plants can be planted outside in which case they tend to get very happy once they dig in.

      Hello Vais,
      The plant will be in the mail for 2 to 3 days and trees tend to come through unscathed. At this point the “2 weeks” would be the longest wait from the day that you order to the day that you actually receive the plant.

      Hi Nancy,
      Not really, Seattle is too cold for Amla. Better San Francisco.

      I’ve seen photos of our plants growing in San Diego, so if they work there, I imagine Texas is probably fine, too. I don’t think they need to be shaded. Trees may start producing fruits after they attain 6 feet tall or taller. It can take years.

      These can be given dilute fish emulsion and kelplex or fermented plant juice well-diluted every 30 days. I like to use a fast-draining mix. r

      Amla is monoecious and fertilized by bees. You can get by with a single tree. Fruit production starts usually around year 8.
