Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) potted plant, organic
Family: Aster (Asteraceae)
Hardy to Zones 10 to 12, otherwise grown as an annual, 100 days to harvest
(Yerba dulce, Sweetleaf, Paraguayan Sweet Herb) Evergreen subshrub native to Paraguay and Brazil. The dried leaf is used for sweetening drinks, bakery or confections and is 250 times sweeter than sugar–a sweet green leaf to be sure! Traditional usage: wounds, hypoglycemia, digestive aid. Plants thrive in rich garden soil, and also they do very well in pots. Tend to get a bit leggy so cut them back to harvest and this will also encourage lower branch growth. Plants prefer full sun to part shade, humidity and plenty of water. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.
