Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Ashwagandha or Indian Ginseng is a species of plant in the Solanaceae family. Its root is part of the traditional pharmacopoeia of India, where it originated. In Ayurveda its roots and leaves are used as tonics, aphrodisiacs or anti-stress. Its name means in Sanskrit that has "the smell of the horse" in reference not to its perfume, but to its power to give strength to a horse! Indian Ginseng is not perennial in our latitudes, you will grow it like your tomatoes and can bring it into a pot at home in the warm winter.

Latin name: Withania somnifera
Common names: Ashwagandha, Indian Ginseng, Withania
English: Indian ginseng, poison gooseberry, winter cherry
Family: Solanaceae

Grows like tomatoes in a climate like in Quebec. Prefer indoor sowing in a bucket, for example, and transplant into the garden 3 to 4 weeks later, after the risk of frost. This plant is not hardy in Quebec, you can if you want to see it evolve into a shrub, keep it in a pot indoors in winter. Harvest its root in the fall.
