(Jie-geng) Herbaceous perennial native to China.  The plant is already familiar to many as an heirloom garden favorite–its unopened flower is a striking blue-purple balloon that has fascinated horticulturalists for centuries.  Used in Chinese cookery, the white, fleshy, and man-shaped root becomes a potent culinary ingredient to special soups and sauces.  Traditional usage (TCM): antitussive.  Prefers full sun and well-drained soil.  Sow in fall, midwinter, or early spring in outdoor nursery bed or cold-condition 6 weeks. Plant 1 foot apart.  Flowers from 30 to 40 inches tall.
