This taprooted herbaceous perennial is native to China and can be found referenced in many traditional Chinese medicine texts. The plant is a sturdy survivor that prefers full sun, average soil, and good drainage. For sowing, scarify seed lightly and soak overnight in a mycorrhizal inoculant, then direct seed in early spring. Astragalus grows best in soils that have been inoculated with mycorrhizal fungi.
