Patchouli, True (Pogostemon cablin) potted plant, organic

$7.50$50.00

Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 10 to 12, normally grown as a potted plant and brought indoors for the winter

(Pogostemon patchouli) Tropical perennial native to Asia.  Iconic essence of the Hippie Culture that arose during the 1960’s and dissipated thereafter, leaving little archaeological evidence in its vericolored wake.  The patchouli plant (and the reddish essential oil obtained from it) evoke images of sweaty sun and green lawns in Berkeley, the strains of Mr Tambourine man drifting across a lucid landscape, smiles and avocados, lace stockings, violet-paned sunglasses, brown breasts with dancing nipples and matchboxes containing (not matches).  Plant prefers full to part shade, moist, rich soils, humidity. The plant thrives under good care but fades fast with neglect–it needs watering almost daily, has zero tolerance for frost and will sunburn if not protected by shade.

Potted plant, certified organically grown

    These seeds germinated really well! Patchouli plants seem to get tired and scraggly after a few years, as many tender perennials do, so don’t be afraid to start fresh from seed, like I did. They’re tiny seedlings, but healthy!

    I’ve been trying to get a patchouli plant for years since I lost one I had. One of the reasons that I did not buy on online was the poor reports that I read around the internet. Many comments are about how small they are when shipped and that they need to be nursed back to life. I was pleasantly surprised with the two plants I bought, not only they are of a decent size but they seem to be in very healthy condition.
