Marsh Woundwort, Tetraploid, 5 rhizome segments


Out of stock


Marsh woundwort (Stachys palustris), is very similar to Chinese artichoke, but with a more earthy flavor.  Tubers reach a maximum of about 4 inches in length, although more typically about half that.  Not particularly heat tolerant, but handles chilly weather better than Chinese artichoke.  Keep it well watered for the best yield.  A good plant for swampy areas, although you might want to plant it in buried containers to keep it from running away.  Plant or pot immediately on receipt; they don’t keep very well out of the ground.

There are a number of different populations with different ploidy levels.  This type is of North American origin and we believe that it is tetraploid, although we’re not entirely sure.
