(Astragalus membranaceus = Astragalus propinquus, the Chinese herb Huang-qi, Huang qi)  Herbaceous perennial native to China. Traditional usage (TCM): increase vital energy and protect against illness. Plants get quite large, flowering to 6 feet, with yellow flowers giving way to pea-like follicles.  Plant is a sturdy survivor, and prefers full sun, average soil, and good drainage.  Scarify seed lightly on medium grit sandpaper and soak overnight in mycoblast tea or kelp tea, which encourages eventual n-fixing nodulation.  Direct seed in early spring, or give 20 days cold, moist refrigeration and then sow cool.  Germ in 3 to 10 days.  Suggestion to scarify seeds and place outdoors for 20 days in January, then bring into a greenhouse for germination.  Thin to 6 inches apart. Plants flower yellow-white to 6 feet tall.
