Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus = Astragalus propinquus)
Herbaceous perennial native to China. King of Chinese tonic herbs, an anabolic immuno-stimulant often used in times of wellness to increase vital energy and protect against illness. An excellent herb to use during recuperation phase, from the common cold to chemotherapy. The fresh or dried roots may be boiled up in decoction or soup. The plant prefers full sun and dryish soils or regular garden soil. Inoculate soil with rhizobacteria (mycoblast) in order to support nodulation, fast and healthy growth. Our potted seedlings are inoculated with mycorrhizae. This plant is perfectly cold hardy. Space plants 1 foot apart.
