(Astragalus membranaceus = Astragalus propinquus, the Chinese herb Huang-qi, Huang qi)  Herbaceous perennial native to China.

Traditional usage (TCM): increase vital energy and protect against illness.

Plants get quite large, flowering to 6 feet, with yellow flowers giving way to pea-like follicles.  Plant is a sturdy survivor, and prefers full sun, average soil, and good drainage. 

Scarify seed lightly on medium grit sandpaper and soak overnight in mycoblast tea or kelp tea, which encourages eventual n-fixing nodulation.  

Direct seed in early spring, or give 20 days cold, moist refrigeration and then sow cool.  Germ in 3 to 10 days. 

Gallery photo of seeds with roots extending was made possible by scarifying seeds and placing outdoors for 20 days in January, then bringing into greenhouse for germination. 

Thin to 6 inches apart. Plants flower yellow-white to 6 feet tall.
