Description for Ginseng American

American ginseng is a herbaceous perennial plant in the ivy family, commonly used as Chinese or herbal medicine. An extract is sold as Cold-fX. It is native to eastern North America, though it is also cultivated in places such as China.

The plant grows 6" to 18" tall, usually bearing three leaves, each with three to five leaflets, 2" to 5" long.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Panax quinquefolius Yellowish-green to greenish-white June to July 0.75 to 1.50 feet easy to grow

Planting and care

Understand the wild-simulated ginseng growing method. This method mimics the plant s natural environment. While ginseng grown this way typically takes eight years to mature, the end result is much more valuable than field-cultivated ginseng due to its color and shape. You may attempt to alter this process by using artificial shade or tilling the soil, but then you will be growing woods-grown ginseng, which may grow into a different, less valuable shape.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade well-drained soil Medium 50F. Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Ginseng American

  • Once the plants have matured, they will produce a cluster of red berries with the seed in the center.
  • Pick these in the fall if you want to harvest the seeds for planting or selling.
  • Keep in mind they will need to be stratified as described under Preparing the Seeds.
