I was wondering if anyone is able to get seeds or live plants of this species: Picorrhiza kurroa?
It is an alpine herb native to India and Pakistan in the Himilayan mountains area and it is also endangered due to overharvesting like other medicinals such as Goldenseal..etc.
Some of the common names are Kutki nd Katuka. It is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. Research has indicated that it is similar to silymarin and could be used for liver diseases.
I would like to find someone who can get me seeds or live plants.
Does anyone know if it would survive in Minnesota ZONE 4a. I am assuming it may since it is an alpine species but i could be wrong since many Himalayan herbs are zones 6,7,8,9.
Is there anyone out there that can help me out?
