Licorice, Official (Glycyrrhiza glabra) potted plant, organic

$7.50

Family: Legume (Fabaceae)

Hardy to Zones 7 to 11

Herbaceous perennial native to the Mediterranean and to Russia.  True, sweet variety.  Traditional usage (TWM): demulcent, expectorant, flavoring agent, chronic fatigue, adrenal exhaustion, gastric ulcer.   Plant prefers full sun and dry, alkaline soils.  Inoculate soil with rhizobium (mycoblast) for best results.  Once established, the plants shoot up like a young willow thicket, setting erect lilac flowers that give way to the smooth pods.  The part used is the stoloniferous root, which can be harvested after 2 or 3 years of growth.  Plant prefers full sun and dry, alkaline soils.  Space 1 to 2 feet apart.

    Cynthia Wheaton

    I live in western Washington, so my native soil is not dry or alkaline. I’d like to plant Glycyrrhiza official in a large full-sun raised bed. How can I create the proper soil?

      I understand this perfectly. actually a raised be or a rock tortuga is perfect for this and I fill with equal partssand/pumice/compost mix. I have a pet plant in one of my tortugas that is gloriously happy this year. r
