(Sedum rhodiola, Golden Root, Rose Root, Russian Rhodiola)  Perennial, fleshy succulent.  There are a number of different ecotypes of Rhodiola rosea. Glycoside (e.g. rosavin, rosin) content is variable depending on ecotype.  This see is from the Russian ecotype that originates within the arctic circle.  It is a high rosavin type.  The dried roots are rose-scented.  Traditional use (TWM): tonic, adaptogenic. Plant prefers sun at altitude and shade to part shade at lower elevations.  Plant in calcareous soil or rock garden. Flowers to 10 inches. Work up in successively larger pots until they are sufficiently sized to transplant to the landscape.

    How long do these take to bloom from the seedling stage? How wonderful that you are offering these. I’m also curious: Do they produce many seeds? Thanks Richo!

      Hi Angela, The Rhodiola can bloom as soon as the second year from seed. They don’t really produce a good seed crop until the third year and ongoing–they can produce a gram or so per plant–the seed is dustlike. Richo

      Will that work on the Oregon coast? I was reading they need to have super cold winters to really thrive. You’re a fellow Oregonian, so I’m sure you know we have very mild winters here. During winter nights, it might get down to 40F, but rarely into freezing temperatures. Do you think I could still have some success with them, if I do everything right with soil needs? I would like to grow them in large pots. Thanks for all your knowledge and help!

      Hi Angela, it will probably work, we can grow them quite successfully here in the siskiyou foothills. I really cannot guarantee anything–there are tons of variables–in any case remember that we’re working with a succulent and a well-drained substrate is critical. I personally try everything and keep what works. richo
