Due to these unusual times of CoVid-19 and the extremely high volume of orders that we have received here at Crimson Sage over the last 3 months, we have decided to stop taking new plant orders at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we need some time to fulfill our current orders and to replenish some of our inventory!! Thanks for your understanding, patience, and choosing to shop with a small, woman owned business. It is truly heart warming to see so many folks nationwide planting their Medicinal Gardens. We will be back up and running as soon as we can!

If you have already placed an order with us, we are shipping as much as possible each week and plan to get your orders shipped over the month of June into early July.

Stevia

Email
Description

Native to Paraguay. A remarkable sugar substitute, Stevia's flavor is stable when cooked. You can use it in jams, canned fruits, cakes and cookies. Your own home grown will taste much better than store bought. Stevia is fast growing. It thrives in full sun and well drained soil. Pinch off the flowers as you would with basil. If Stevia is allowed to flower, they droop and become dormant. Some studies have shown that it contains substances that inhibit tooth decay, increase mental alertness, decrease fatigue, improve digestion, regulates blood pressure, and is safe for diabetics. However it has not been approved by the FDA. Excellent sugar substitute for diabetics. My children love to nibble the leaves. Stevia is a tender perennial. Hardy to zone 9.

Latin Name Stevia rebaudiana
