HERBS & FLOWERS"D-E-F"
DRAGON FRUIT CACTUS
(Night Blooming Cereus)
Hylocereus Undatus
A vine-like climbing cactus with flowers that  bloom overnight and
usually wilt by the morning. They rely on nocturnal pollinators such
as bats or moths for fertilization. A second plant is needed to
insure fertilization. However, the plants can flower between three
and six times in a year depending on growing conditions. Like
other cacti, if a healthy piece of the stem is broken off, it may
take root in soil and become its own plant. The dragon fruit sets
30–50 days after flowering and can sometimes have 5-6 cycles of
harvests per year. The night blooming cereus may very well seem
unruly, but it is certainly not without redeeming value. Not only
does it produce a magnificent flower and delicious fruit, but it also
has important medicinal qualities. It can be a potent heart
medicine.
DUSTY MILLER
Senecio cineraria
TENDER PERENNIAL- ZONES 7-11
SUN
Height: Under 6 inches to 3 feet. Width: To 2 feet
wide.
Dusty Miller are very easy to grow. Silver-white foliage
is popular for grey gardens.  The sterilized or
freshly-squeezed juice of cineraria has been used for
cataracts and conjunctivitis (pink eye) to expedite
healing. A few drops of the juice were placed into the
eye several times daily..
EPHEDRA (MA HUANG)
Ephedra sinica
PERENNIAL-ZONES 6-8
SUN
Mature height and width of 3 feet.
Ma huang is a powerful stimulant herb containing the alkaloid
ephedrine, the main inspiration for today’s popular over-the-
counter antihistamine drugs. Purified ephedrine is very potent,
and the practice of adding it to diet formulas is potentially
dangerous because ephedrine can raise blood pressure if
used over a long period, and can even cause cardiac
arrythmias. However, when used in its native, non-purified
form, the dried herb is much safer and very popular in
traditional Chinese medicine for dispersing conditions
characterized by wind and cold, such as chills, fever,
headache, cough and wheezing. Very hardy; prefers dry, well-
drained location with full sun exposure.

HARDY PERENNIAL-ZONES 5-9
SUN

and cosmetic uses, and is now grown as a cultivated crop in
Europe for those purposes. Traditionally, it was used as
a tea to treat diarrhea and dysentery, and cooked in milk with
honey and butter it was used to treat respiratory

VINE
Legendary Oriental Elixir of Life said to possess fantastic
rejuvenating properties. Some believe fo-ti was used by a
certain Professor Li Chung Yun who lived to the ripe old
age of 256! So the story goes, early in life Li developed
the penchant for taking a daily concoction containing the
elixir of life. He is said to have outlived 23 wives, and left
behind 11 generations of descendents when he died in
1933. Virility- and longevity-promoting prowess aside,
fo-ti is one of the most widely used tonic herbs in
traditional Chinese medicine. Roots are used to restore
blood, liver and kidneys, and is prescribed for conditions
as varied as vertigo, insomnia, lumbago, and
constipation. Recent evidence shows it to be effective
against high blood pressure and hardening of the veins
and arteries. Climber.
