Schisandra, Official (Schisandra chinensis) potted vine, organic

$30.00

Family: Magnolia (Magnoliaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8

(Wu-wei-zi, Matrimony Vine, Magnolia Vine) Perennial woody vine. Native to Manchuria, northeastern China and Japan. The odoriferous pink or white flowers give way to bright red fruit which droops down in clusters from the vine. This is known as the many-flavored berry. The taste is sour. Traditional usage (TCM): appetite stimulant, immune-enhancement.  Vine prefers moist soils and dappled shade, and really prefers to sprangle on the ground instead of climbing a trellis.   Space 3 feet apart.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown

  1. Question

    Michelle

    Hi! I’ve run across info that says in order to get fruit from a schisandra plant one must have a male and female plant. Is this the case? What is the minimum number I should plant to get berries, in your experience? Thanks!

      Horticulturalists used to think schisandra was dioecious but now have confirmed that they are self-fertile. I plant mine 3 to a trellis and am looking forward to picking my first berries this year. It took 3 years for the plants to achieve sufficient size.

      Hio Sandra,
      I’m just waiting for the overwintered plants to break dormancy before listing. Check back on 3/26/19. Next year (2020) we’re going to have an endless supply of these.

      As of 2/13/2019, no plants are available for shipment–we do not start shipping until March 15 and the available slots for early shipping have been filled. We’ll enable Schisandra when the plants come out of dormancy and look good–we’ll endeavor to give you an e-mail at that time.
