    I ordered 3 of these at the end of spring. They are in a hanging pot, mostly shaded, and have grown about 4-5 feet. Best of all, they survived and thrived throughout our hot Texas summer (many days 100+ degrees) with only minimal wilting! I’ll be ordering more…

    I searched everywhere for a source of organic Jiao-gu-lan. I have often been offered a healing tea from this herb when I am in Temples in China. I found these and ordered three. The price was so reasonable that I was sure they would be tiny barely rooted cuttings. Much to my surprise, I promptly received three beautiful balls of vigorously rooted plants in great condition. Thank you ever so much. I will so enjoy drinking tea next summer.

    pretty darn cold hardy so far

    This has overwintered well in my unheated greenhouse. Last year was cold enough to kill the Hill’s Hardy rosemary there, around -15F, but this plant was fine. It is increasing and spreading by rooting. I had plants overwinter with snow cover outside, but the voles were quite fond of it. ( The chickens love it as a green too!)

    Exceptionally vigorous plants

    Last year I ordered 3 jiaogulan with 3 ashitaba. Upon opening the package I saw the jiaogulan had wrapped tendrils around the ashitaba– for support during the ride, I’m sure! 😉
