Withania somnifera


I grow this as an annual in our climate though in warmer regions it is a perennial.   Grows up to 4 feet tall.   Originally from Africa,  Ashwaganda grows well in tropical regions.  Plants prefer full-I grow mine in a hoop house but other NW growers grow them outdoors.  The roots are a highly prized medicinal herb in the Ayurvedic tradition.  


Sowing instructions:  Ashwaganda is in the Solanaceae family with tomatoes and other nightshades.  I start them indoors in April to transplant in a hoophouse in May.  I get a large root harvest in the fall.  


Please consult your favorite resources for the medicinal uses and energetic qualities of this plant. 


Packet contains ~30 seeds
