$22.00

Family:  Citrus (Rutaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

(Gasplant, White Dittany, Fraxinella) Herbaceous perennial native to Europe and Asia, flowering to 3 feet and equally as wide.  Traditional uses (TWM, TCM), dried bark, root bark, dried leaves:  Bacterial and fungal infections, fever, emmenagogue, kidney stones, general debility. Some sources report potential toxicity which does not seem to be borne out by 3,000 years of efficacious usage in TCM.   Plant produces bushy, shining compound leaves and orange-scented flowers in handsome, pyramidal spikes that emit flammable puffs of essential oil on hot summer evenings. The seed pods are sticky with aromatic resin.  An elegant herbaceous perennial that rises yearly, early in the spring, and flowers in early summer.  The plant prefers full sun to part shade and a well-drained, fertile soil of pH 6.5 to 7.5.  The water requirement is medium.  These are slow-growing but very long-lived on the landscape.    Space plants 3 to 4 feet apart.

    Can these be planted in full sun. I live in central Virginia. I am thinking about adding them to a mass planting of coneflowers. Thank you

      hello shawn, these will take full sun and are likely to outlive the echinacea. i recommend them highly. The plant prefers full sun to part shade and a well-drained, fertile soil of pH 6.5 to 7.5.  The water requirement is medium. richo
