Mormon Tea, Nevada (Ephedra nevadensis), packet of 30 seeds [AUS/NZ NO]


Family:  Joint Fir (Ephedraceae)

Hardy to Zones 6 to 12

Perennial, primitive shrub with jointed stems.  Native to the American Southwest. Plant prefers full sun and alkaline, dry to mesic soils.  Probably best to pot up to bigger pots and grow out for a year or two before transplanting to landscape.   Traditional usage: Mormon.  Used as a non-stimulating bronchial dilator for palliative treatment of the common cold or asthma.  Plant prefers full sun and very fast draining soil.  Scarify lightly, soak overnight in water or in willow-tip tea and sow seeds about 1 inch deep in warm, fast-draining mix.  Germination is usually a bit spotty, starting at 2 weeks and continuing on for some time.  Individuate the plants and grow out in pots for a year or two before transplanting to landscape.
