Schisandra Seeds, Wu-wei-zi (Schisandra chinensis)

Schisandra, Wu-wei-zi (Schisandra chinensis) Deciduous, woody vine. Zones 5-9. Schisandra is native to Northern China and has a long time history in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Schisandra berries are adaptogenic, increase apatite and immune function and are drop-dead gorgeous hanging on the vine! Known as the “five-flavoured berry”. As the saliva in your mouth breaks down the berry, you get to taste all the five flavours; sour, sweet, pungent, salty and bitter.  Flowers preceding berries are a soft pink and fragrant. Schisandra can be grown on a trellis or arbour.

Each packet contains 10 schisandra seeds.

Growing: *Germination of 50-70%* Schisandra seeds require a 30-60 days cold, moist stratification. Soak seeds for 24 hours and then plant out in Autumn for germination the following Spring. This natural cycle can be simulated indoors at room temperature and then in a moist soil baggy in the refrigerator.
