Southernwood Citrus 9 a W

foliage is tangerine and others say it’s more
like lemon. We can’t decide which, but is does
have a lovely fresh citrusy scent with a dash
of pin. Taller and more feathery than standard southernwood. Ht. 4-6 ft.
St. John’s Wort
a
Hypericum perforatum P SFE
Old remedy for insomnia, depression and
bed-wetting, now touted as a natural alternative to antidepressant drugs. Recent clinical
evidence suggest that the flowering tops
are effective in controlling mood and mild
depression. Liniment made with the tops in
vegetable oil is soothing and healing when
rubbed on painful joints and muscles. Standard variety.
Stevia
9
Stevia rebaudiana P XM
Hot crop! Remarkable sugar substitute containing
steviosides hundreds of times sweeter than sugar
but without the calories. Leaf powder can be used
in place of sugar in drinks, baked goods, desserts,
preserves, etc. Has a pleasant flavor of its own that
never dominates or overwhelms. A very hot crop
for commercial growers. The market is expanding
rapidly.
Crazy Sweet™ Stevia 9 a
Stevia rebaudiana ‘AC™GIIA11’ P
Super sweet! No bitter aftertaste! This is the
best stevia variety on the market. If you tried
stevia before and disliked the taste, you will
love this new variety. When you try the leaves,
you will notice the taste is very clean and incredibly sweet; there is no bitterness and none
of the licorice aftertaste typical of other stevias.
Its magic is in the mix of compounds that are
responsible for the sweet taste. Unlike regular
stevia, Crazy Sweet™ is high in rebaudioside A,
the sweetest and least bitter of the steviosides
found in stevia. It is the result of a successful
Canadian breeding program to make stevia a
better alternative to sugar.

as chutney, or the whole leaves are eaten in salads or
cooked like spinach. The plant contains marsiline, a
substance with sedative and anticonvulsant properties. In clinical trails, sushni was shown to reduce
the incidence of epileptic seizures and increased the

in one study it reduces blood cholesterol by 31%
