Chinese Medicinal Herbs in Your Garden

I started collecting plants used in Chinese herbal medicine. Some I planted at home, some around our office. Many of these plants are very ornamental and can be found at local garden centers.


Balloon flowers.


Lily turf.



Some plants are more specialized I have to order them on-line.

Goji berries.

Mountian yam.

And some planted themselves in my garden without permission.

Dandelion and plantain.

Do you have Chinese medicinal herbs in your garden?

  1. How does one learn to harvest and prepare them for storage, though. Or use them. I tried to find Goji berry plants online but no success. Anyway, refreshing pictures to look at, thanks.
