(12 customer reviews)

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 dioecious vine native to China, Tibet, Japan and Southeast Asia, the blue-green leaves of this perennial vine are commonly made into 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, or you can overwinter them indoors (they grow!) or in a cold greenhouse to add some protection.  Trellis.  Traditional usage:  adaptogen and life extension.  To explain one of the gallery images–it is a specialized jiao-gu-lan bed in a greenhouse, with deep, rich soil surrounded by rocks.  You can see the jiao-gu-lan roots planted to the perimeter of the bed.  The vines (male and female) will drape over the sides and fruit in season.  r
