Planting & Care
Plant in spring or fall. Space plants 5 to 15 feet apart, depending on the expected mature size of the plant. Dig a hole only as deep as the root ball and 2 to 3 times as wide. If your soil is in very poor condition, amend the soil you ve removed from the hole with a small amount of compost. Otherwise don t amend it at all.
Carefully remove the plant from the container and set it in the hole. Fill the hole half full with soil, then water it well to settle the soil and eliminate air pockets. Let the water drain, then fill the remainder of hole with soil and water thoroughly.

Care:
  • Apply a layer of compost around the base of the plant each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds.
  • Water plants during the summer if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.
  • Prune shrubs and vines after flowering.
  • Aggressive varieties can be pruned back to the ground in late winter to control growth.

Use
Medicinal use:
  • Asthma weed has traditionally been used in Asia to treat bronchitic asthma and laryngeal spasm, though in modern herbalism it is more used in the treatment of intestinal amoebic dysentery.
  • It should not be used without expert guidance, however, since large doses cause gastro-intestinal irritation, nausea and vomiting.

Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
for medicinal use, please consult appropriate doctor before use.
