Ephedra sinica (Ma-hung)

Ephedra sinica (Ma-hung)

A traditional Chinese medicine ma-haung has been used in the orient for over 5,000 years. Ephedras are among the oldest plant life on the planet related to horsetails, and ginkgos. Grey green naked stems of Ephedra sinica resemble a stunted pine tree, or multi branched horsetail. Ephedra grows best in rock gardens, areas, with poor soil, full sun, and little irrigation. This is an interesting and easy to grow plant.
