Mint Root / Chinese Artichoke

8.00

Stachys Affinis
 Mint Root or Chinese Artichoke... Looks like a mint, although doesn't have a strong smell at all.  Resistant to browse like mint, but unique to this plant is underground tons of little white tubers are formed you can enjoy fall through spring.  Dig them as you want them.  Shade tolerant, easy to grow, spreading but not in a scary way.  This is a fun plant to have and learn about!

Size:
2' when in full flower, generally almost a ground cover

Site Preference:
Seems tolerant of partial shade

Hardiness:
Zone 4

Your purchase will get you at least one but most probably a few, rooted tubers ready to plant out and get established.
