(Chinese Foxglove, Lit. “Cooked Earth Yellow”) Herbaceous perennial native to China. More than 400 years history of cultivation, the plant is quite showy, with foxglove-like (no digitalis alkaloids, though) flaring dark red flowers on a short, wide plant. Very colorful leaves, as well. The root is rubbery, orange, and covered with propagative buds. The plant is extremely rare in the US and we are delighted to again have this available for serious growers of Chinese medicinal plants. Traditional uses (TCM): processed root replenishes vitality, strengthen liver and kidney, also heart, treating diabetes, constipation, anemia, urinary tract problems, dizziness and menstrual woes. Plant prefers sun and very fast-draining soil. Space 1 to 2 feet apart.
Potted plant, certified organically grown
