ECHINACEA
(CONEFLOWER)
HARDY PERENNIAL-ZONE 3-10
FULL SUN
Height: 1 to 3 feet. Width: 1-2 feet
NATIVE PLANT
Echinacea is now a household name and preparations made
from it are found in every corner pharmacy. It is truly
the queen of medicinal herbs because it not only helps the
body fight off disease by boosting the immune system, it
is one of the showiest perennial herbs in the garden.
EDELWEISS
Leontopodium alpinum
HARDY PERENNIAL-ZONES 5-9
SUN
Height: 8 in. Width 9 in.
No plant symbolizes the alpine regions of Europe quite like the edelweiss.
But edelweiss has important medicinal and cosmetic uses, and is now grown
as a cultivated crop in Europe for those purposes. Traditionally, it was used
as a tea to treat diarrhea and dysentery, and cooked in milk with honey and
butter it was used to treat respiratory problems including tuberculosis.
But in the future it is expected that the cosmetic industry will employ edelweiss to neutralize free radicals and prevent the
formation of superoxides — compounds associated with the signs of aging such as wrinkles. Due to its bioflavonoid
content, the herb also strengthens the walls of capillaries and veins and can be used to treat varicose veins, hemorrhoids,
and other vascular problems associated with aging. Has exciting commercial potential.

EPHEDRA (Ma Huang)
Ephedra sinica
PERENNIAL-ZONES 6-8
SUN
Mature height and width of 3 feet
Ma huang is a powerful stimulant herb containing the alkaloid
ephedrine, the main inspiration for today’s popular over-the-counter
antihistamine drugs. Purified ephedrine is very potent, and the
practice of adding it to diet formulas is potentially dangerous
because ephedrine can raise blood pressure if used over a long
period, and can even cause cardiac arrythmias. However, when used
in its native, non-purified form, the dried herb is much safer and very
popular in traditional Chinese medicine for dispersing conditions
characterized by wind and cold, such as chills, fever, headache,
cough and wheezing. Very hardy; prefers dry, well-drained location
with full sun exposure.
BRONZE FENNEL
Foeniculum vulgare dulce 'Rubrum'
HARDY PERENNIAL-ZONES 5-11
SUN
4 or 5 feet in height, up to 3
feet in width
Popular flavoring for fish, soups, salads and stews. Seeds are effective
against flatulence and are used to treat colicky babies. Long ago it was
thought that fennel hung over a doorway at midsummer would prevent evil
spirits from entering that home for the coming year. In the garden, the
blooms will attract bees and butterflies. Chopped leaves are excellent
with oily fish, such as mackerel and salmon, for they improve
digestibility. Also in soups, salads and stews. Fennel tea is given to
infants for its calming and anti-flatulent effects. Highly decorative form of
fennel with bronze-red, lacy foliage.
FEVERFEW (WILD)
Tanacetum parthenium
HARDY PERENNIAL-ZONE 5-9
SUN
height of 24” and 18” wide.
A medical survey in England indicates that 1 to 4 leaves of
feverfew infused in a tea or eaten in a sandwich daily
reduce the number and severity of migraine attacks in some
sufferers. It even has pleasant side effects including a sense
of well-being, lack of tension and relief from arthritis.
Approx. 0.4% parthenolide.
FO-TI
Polygonum multiflorum
TENDER PERENNIAL –ZONES 7B-9
SUN PART SHADE
VINE
Legendary Oriental Elixir of Life said to possess fantastic
rejuvenating properties. Some believe fo-ti was used by a
certain Professor Li Chung Yun who lived to the ripe old age of
256! So the story goes, early in life Li developed the penchant
for taking a daily concoction containing the elixir of life. He is
said to have outlived 23 wives, and left behind 11 generations
of descendents when he died in 1933. Virility- and longevity-
promoting prowess aside, fo-ti is one of the most widely used
tonic herbs in traditional Chinese medicine. Roots are used to
restore blood, liver and kidneys, and is prescribed for
conditions as varied as vertigo, insomnia, lumbago, and
constipation. Recent evidence shows it to be effective against
high blood pressure and hardening of the veins and arteries.

DRAGON FRUIT CACTUS
(Night Blooming Cereus)
Hylocereus Undatus
TENDER PERENNIAL
A vine-like climbing cactus with flowers that  bloom overnight
and usually wilt by the morning. They rely on nocturnal
pollinators such as bats or moths for fertilization. A second plant
is needed to insure
fertilization. However, the plants can flower between three and
six times in a year depending on growing conditions. Like other
cacti, if a healthy piece of the stem is broken off, it may take
root in soil and become its own plant. The dragon fruit sets 30–
50 days after flowering and can sometimes have 5-6 cycles of
harvests per year. The night blooming cereus may very well
seem unruly, but it is certainly not without redeeming value. Not
only does it produce a magnificent flower
and delicious fruit, but it also has important medicinal qualities.
It can be a potent heart medicine
.
