Ashitaba, Standard (Angelica keiskei koidzumi), potted plant, organic

(25 customer reviews)

$7.50

Family:  Carrot (Apiaceae)

Hardy to Zone 7 to 12.

(HACHIJO-SOU, Tomorrow’s Leaf)  Biennial native to Hachijojima Island in Japan.  This is the standard type with green leaves and stems.  High chlorophyll plant with yellow sap, unique among Angelicas due to its edibility and the presence of both B 12 and the flavonoids known as “chalcones.”  Mature size is about 4 feet wide and flowering to about 5 feet tall.  The plant requires warm temperatures for optimal growth–75 to 85 degrees F.  They need at least 6 hours sunlight daily to thrive!  It is often best to greenhouse them, although coastal climates (such as San Francisco area) seem to work pretty well for outdoor cultivation, and zone 8 growers may find that these plants do fine in regular open garden conditions.  For best results, plant into a large container of compost.  Space plants 3 feet apart.

Potted plant certified organically grown

    Healthy Plants

    My plants arrived 2 days after shipping. They were very healthy. It’s been 2 days since they’ve arrived, been repotted, and have perked up nicely. I’m very pleased with my order and look forward to ordering more soon!

    I love this plant. It grows well for me in Texas. Just discovered that it is a host plant for black swallowtail butterflies. The caterpillars love it too!

    The quality of Strictly Medicinal’s shipped plants were above expectation, they come with a shipping tracking number to watch carefully so they can be rescued in their time of disruption as soon as possible, they arrived in 48 hours of shipment. Upon reading careful instructions and pulling each plant out, surprisingly they came out nearly glowing, with a few crinkles and bends on only their leaves, they sat upright immediately welcoming their new home. The careful packaging was not limited to keeping them safe from battening, but with wishes of luck, love and health. Kind regards and much gratitude!

    I ordered six Ashitaba plants and received healthy/vital starts—beautifully packed for shipping. I had questions about best growing conditions and both the phone support and email response were forthright and generous. I’m excited to see how they make themselves at home in my garden. Thank you!
