Chinese folklore says that Schisandra can "calm the heart and quiet the spirit", and it has a long history in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Schisandra, also known as Magnolia vine due to its ability to grow upwards in a creeping fashion, is a native to Northern China, Russia, and parts of Korea. The plant likes full sun/partial shade with moist, well-drained soil and require conditions of moderate humidity and light, together with a wet, humus-rich soil. Schisandra chinensis has alternate, deciduous leaves that are approximately 2-1/2 inches long and 1 to 1-1/2 inches wide. In the spring the small, lightly fragrant, snow white flowers grow in clusters. These flowers give way to beautiful bunches of red berries, which hang like grapes in the fall and are highly valued for their medicinal properties. The most popular use can be recorded in China and East Russia, where it is used to make juices, syrups, teas, wines, extracts, and sweets.
Its Chinese name is wu-wei-zi, which means five taste fruit. Schisandra has an usually sour, sweet, bitter, warm, and salty taste, hence the name "five-flavor".
Rare plant, long-winded germination but well worth the effort. USDA Zone 4-9
Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner before taking with medications.
