Dang-shen, pilosula (Codonopsis pilosula) seeds, organic

(4 customer reviews)


Family:  Bellflower (Campanulaceae)

Hardy to Zones 3 to 9

(Dang-shen, Poor Man’s Ginseng) Twining and vining perennial native to China.  Traditional usage (TCM): builds chi and tonifys the blood. A soft and pretty climber with bell-shaped blossoms. The roots are crunchy, very sweet, quite delicious.  The herb in TCM is the pressed and dried, rolled root that is sugary and chewy.  Highly recommended. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and something to climb on–preferably another plant but lacking that at least a string.  Sow in spring. Watch out for gophers, these roots are tastier than carrots!
