Description

Astragalus (Huang-qi) is an herbaceous perennial native to China. Hardy in Zones 4 to 10; mulch heavily in colder zones. This plant grows quite large, flowering to 6 feet, with yellow flowers giving way to pea-like follicles. Astragalus is a sturdy survivor, and prefers full sun, average soil, and good drainage. Scarify seed lightly on medium grit sandpaper and soak overnight in mycoblast tea or kelp tea, which encourages eventual nitrogen-fixing nodulation. Direct seed in early spring, or give 20 days cold, moist refrigeration and then sow cool until germination, which takes 3 to 10 days. Thin or transplant to 6 inches apart.
