Codonopsis tangshen

Garden Care

Poor Man’s Ginseng, another herbaceous perennial that I have struggled to grow successfully.  I will continue to work on it.  The few plants that I put in the ground last year did not fair well.  We will see what this year brings.  If she would ever get big enough, she likes to vine up a trellis.  I have her in full sun (which may be part of her problem) and the soil was compacted.  Hopefully, this year she will get to growing.
