Plants ordered now will ship mid September.
Mandrake, Autumn (Mandragora autumnalis), potted plant, organic
As of 7/11/2019 I have enabled 6 new plants that have already broken summer dormancy and look very good. Since 7/15/2019 is our last plants shipping day before the summer break, I encourage your early order to receive the plant quickly. One other small realization this brings up is, that out of a population of several hundred, only a few are showing this early emergence–so if you’re taking care of one plant and wondering why it hasn’t broken summer dormancy yet, then the reason would be, critical mass.
Family: Nightshade (Solanacea)
Hardy to Zones 6 to 10
Herbaceous perennial, native to Southern Europe. One of the most choice of all true Mandrake species. Flowers purple to 12 inches tall, giving way to fruits of yellow and orange. Traditional usage (TWM): fertility, aphrodisiac, a magical totem, relieve pain, promote sleep. Source of tropane alkaloids–do not ingest. Plant prefers alkaline pH—deep, sandy soils. Autumnalis does fine in dry sun to moist shade, tends to flower in the autumn as opposed to the winter-flowering types. Flowers are amazing. Space plants 2 feet apart.
Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
