This rhizome is absolutely gorgeous to have either in the garden or potted, where it is bound to get attention and comments.
It's beautiful bright green foliage is match only but the bizarre nature of it's hooded green flower with the overstated plume that is indicative of the Family.
A Spring to Summer herb only, it begins to settle back to the earth in Autumn, when harvest is best performed.
Preparation of the herb for use is very particular and research and experience is necessary before the herb can be safely used.
Only use roots that have been properly prepared, using dried instead of fresh plant can be used.
Chemically, it contains, Amino acids (arginine, serine), alkaloids (ephedrine), polysaccharides, phytosterol, choline, zinc.
Some plants are planted seasonally, as their nature demands.
These will therefore only be available while they last, as we try not to plant more than will survive in a condition appropriate to be mailed out with the greatest chance of survival.
If we are out of stock (especially annuals), we will not be planting until the time is right for the particular plant, once again.
This may be up to 8 months, depending on the plant.
