Immortality Herb

An Herb for Long Life!

Referred to as the 'anti-aging' or 'cure-all' herb, this immune-boosting plant is enjoyed as tea in the villages of southern China and northern Vietnam where inhabitants are rumored to have unusual longevity. Suitable for growing indoors or out, vines will reach up to 25 ft. long and can be grown in a hanging basket or trained up a trellis for dramatic effect. Perennial in zones 8-10, grow as an annual or houseplant elsewhere.
