      It is OK, but really wants to grow to full size and strike its roots deeply

      Hi Chuck, you can grow it as a garden annual in any zone. The plant will be an herbaceous or woody perennial in zone 8 and up. Richo

      Hi Rebecca, thanks for contacting. We sell only the things you find on our website, mainly seeds, potted plants and bare roots. You’re on the african ashwagandha page–we would send you an african ashwagandha in a pot–it would do very well in a hot hoophouse. richo
