BAICAL SKULLCAP/ HUANG QIN (SCUTELLARIA BAICALENSIS)

8.95

This member of the skullcap (Scultellaria) genus is known for the powerful anti-microbial properties of its orange-yellow roots, and in fact shares some constituents with Goldenseal, Barberry, and Oregon Grape.  Excellent broad-spectrum anti-microbial. Famous in the traditional Chinese Medicine materia medica, this plant is very bitter and cool in nature and often used to clear Excess Heat from the system-think infections.  Rather low-growing, producing deep-purple plumes of flowers that are truly showy in the garden.  Easy to grow.  Prefer full-sun and dryish, poor soils.  Hardy perennial to Zone 4.
