Madder (Rubia tinctorum) potted plant, organic

$7.50$19.95

Family: Madder (Rubiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 6 to 10.

Climbing evergreen perennial native to the Mediterranean and southern Europe. The plant is a classic element of the Medieval garden, completely unique, wending its way along the ground or draping on fence or trellis.  The yellow, star-like flowers are produced in the second year after which the roots may be dug.  Madder root contains the anthraquinone pigment alizarin, which is responsible for its popularity as a fine red dye plant.  (The English “red coats” owed their visibility to this plant!)   Traditional usage:  TWM, treatment of urinary stone. Plant prefers regular garden soil and full sun.
