How many iterations of this blog will there be?

Platycodon grandiflorus

This is the mystery plant John’s step mom gave me. She is heavily accented and I could never understand what she was telling me about this plant. I thought it might be ginseng, as she was telling me something about it’s root.

Turns out, this is a native of Korea, as is John’s step mom, and a relative of Campanula. White is the most common color in Korea. And the root is used therapeutically for coughs and cold.

She planted them for me two years ago, but the first year the deer nibbled them away to, I thought, extinction.

Happily, I was wrong. I look forward to seeing this open up.

C'mon! Let me know you're reading.
