Description

Ashwagandha is a an evergreen or herbaceous subshrub native to India, flowering yellow and giving way to lantern-like pods. This plant is a hardy perennial in Zones 8 to 12; otherwise grown as an annual, 200 days to maturity. This plant grows 2 to 3 feet tall, eventually producing the lantern-like pods enclosing the pea-sized fruits, green at first and becoming bright red as the inflated calyx dries and becomes transparent: pretty little winter cherries. This plant prefers full sun, fast-draining, alkaline (pH 7.5 to 8.0) soil and dryish conditions. Sweeten regular garden soil with ground limestone. A light dependent germinator, sow in early spring indoors or in the greenhouse. Average germination time is 15 days. Pot up into successively larger pots and transplant 1 to 2 feet apart.
