Rhodiola rosea is a cold-climate, perennial herb. It is generally classified as a natural adaptogen, meaning a substance that promotes overall well-being and performance, both mentally and physically within the body. Rhodiola rosea was traditionally called golden root. Golden root increases blood flow to the brain, allowing for increased performance. As an adaptogen, rhodiola is high in antioxidants. Users frequently find that it increases resistance to irritability, stress, fatigue and occasional headaches. By reducing stress, it benefits the heart. Rhodiola Rosea is also a favorite of Russian athletes who seek the benefits of physical performance, whereas it is employed by students looking for the mental performance. The herb has also long been used in various other parts of the world as a health tonic.
Rhodiola Rosea is easy to grow once established and is rather hardy, requiring little care to thrive. Place seeds in shallow soil partially protected from wind and sun, starting when there is still significant wintry climate. It thrives in rich soil so if your soil is poor, mix the top few inches with organic mulch before starting the germination process. For best germination, it is best to soak seeds overnight, and plant in moist, sandy soil that will be placed in cool to cold storage for at least 6 weeks. You can also plant seeds outdoors during the fall through October in order to allow the winter, approaching, to work its charm. Seedlings will not tolerate immense moisture OR extreme drought. “Rose Root,” likes full sun and therefore can be planted against buildings or as ground cover. Germination can take from 1-16 weeks.
