Jiao-gu-lan, Japanese (Gynostemma pentaphyllum), packet of 10 seeds, organic

$4.95

Family:  Cucurbit (Cucurbitaceae)

Hardy to zone 7 to 12, commonly grown as a potted plant and brought in for the winter.

(Immortality, Amachazu, Jiao-gu-lan)  Herbaceous or perennial vine native to China, Tibet, Japan and Southeast Asia, the blue-green leaves of this perennial vine are commonly made into a tasty tea. Does well in pots and is commonly kept in a light window. Outdoors, a thick mulch will assist these beauties in surviving harsh winters (they will go dormant down to the roots), or you can overwinter them indoors (they grow!) or in a cold greenhouse to add some protection.  Trellis.  Traditional usage:  adaptogen and life extension.

Plant prefers rich, deep, fast-draining yet fertile soil in a partially shaded exposure.  The plants are adaptable and may be grown outdoors, in the greenhouse, or indoors in a light window (will climb the shades).  Seeds are fragile.  We try to protect them in shipment and recommend handling the packet gently.  Seeds germinate in 3 to 6 weeks in warm soil. Space plants 2 feet apart.

      Hi There, it is now winter 2019 and we do not expect to harvest Jiao seeds again until late fall 2019. We recommend getting the plants, they are easy to divide and increase.

      Delivery is in the spring.
