•Also known as Poor Man's Ginseng and Bonnet Bellflowers
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 5-9
This delicate, ornamental herb and trailing vine produces heart-shaped leaves, unusual green bell-shaped flowers, delicately shaded on the exterior. Native to Northeast Asia and Korea, Codonopsis is a plant family that, as well as being used as a vital energy replenisher (or "qi"), has been reported to slow down the growth of cancer cells and affect the immune system.
Being a climber, this vining plant will need another plant, pole or trellis to climb on. Seeds will need to be cold stratified 30 days if not sown in late fall or early spring before the last frost. To direct sow, surface sow spacing 12-24" between plants in a sunny area. Inside, stratify the seeds and then surface sow in peat pots in good draining, acidic soil at 60-70°F . Transplant after the threat of frost.
