About: Andrographis is also known as “King of the Bitters” for a good reason~ this is a very bitter herb! And quite cooling. We grow this annual in our zone 3 gardens, starting the seeds in early spring in the greenhouse. These are tiny plants with tiny flowers and leaves that wake up one’s sense of taste! In its natural habitat Andrographis is an annual shrub that grows throughout India.
