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.
