Anemarrhena (Zhi mu)


7 in stock


3-4″ potted anemarrhena (zhi mu) plants

This ornamental grass is both a rarity in cultivation, and one of our favorite medicinal plants!  The Chinese name for this herb, zhi mu, means “know mother,” referring to its ability to protect and nourish the feminine (cooling blood, hormones, and body fluids) aspect of the body.  Small pink, white or lavender vase-shaped flowers rise above the grassy mound up to 4′ tall when flowering.  Seedlings grow slowly so keep potted and plant out in the second year.  Full sun to part shade; average soil; prefers regular watering.
