Looking for a special plant this year? Our horticultural staff have identified some of their staff picks for our Mother's Day Sale May 10-12, 2013. Here's Roseann's pick for the sale:
Rhodiola rosea - roseroot stonecrop (syn. Sedum rosea) Crassulaceae
Our introduction to Roseroot came when Dr. Kruckeberg shared a journal article which discussed the ongoing modern research of this species. He thought that we should try to grow this interesting and lovely plant. Known as an herbal adaptagen, Roseroot has been used in traditional European and Asian medicine for over three thousand years.
