About: Eleuthero, a thorny deciduous perennial shrub growing in Northeast Asia, is a member of the Ginseng family. It is classified as an adaptogen. This vibrant plant grows zones 3-7; in the northeast the plants prefer full sun and moist soil, though we have also seen it thrive in partial shade and sandy soil. It’s presence is somewhat regal, the plant gesture indicating the strength and upright energy it offers!
