New medicinal herbs in our garden

I've planted the seedlings I started this spring. Hyacinths beans (bai bien dou), and Job's Tears (yi yi ren) are annuals. I planted them in containers, with some Pinks (qu mai) thrown in as fillers.

Tree Peony (mu dan) was moved to the corner, with newly planted Astragalus (huang qi), Licorice (gan cao), and Codonopsis (dang shen). All three new herbs are perennials and are harvested for their roots 3-5 years after planting.

Both Agastache rugosa (huo xiang) and Agastache foeniculum are planted in the crescent-shaped bed beside Coburn Chiropratic entrance. With some western herbs, St. John's Wort and Yarrow, to keep them company.
