(Yu-Xing-Cao) Creeping herbaceous perennial native to China. Traditional use (TWM, TCM): Stomach ailments, infections. Ours is the species plant–not a select cultivar or hybrid–it has the standard lemony taste to the leaves, and standard fish-soup taste to the crunchy rhizomes. Stolons and leaves used as an aromatic and tasty condiment. This plant is very easily grown and will diversify any cuisine. We recommend to market growers, connoisseurs, restaurant owners and inventive householders. Easily grown in containers, will spread in open fertile beds.
