considerations for growing and harvesting bupleurum

Bupleurum Root Powder can be found in grassy areas on hills and mountain slopes in Korea. Grasslands, stream banks, sunny slopes and roadsides at elevations of 100-2700 metres in China. It can grow in semi-shade or no shade.

Bupleurum grows in sandy, loamy and heavy clay soils and prefers dry to moist, well-drained soil.

Sow seeds in spring in a cold frame. The seed usually germinates in 2-8 weeks. Transplant out the seedlings into pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out in the summer or following spring. Can also propagate by division in spring—larger clumps can be planted directly into the outdoor planting bed. It is best to pot up smaller clumps and grow them on in a cold frame until they are well rooted before planting them out in the summer.

The bitter, acrid, cooling root of the bupleurum plant has a Chinese name that literally means “kindling of the barbarians.” The plant itself is a perennial ornamental that has sickle shaped leaves and clusters of small yellow flowers.


The root, dried and chopped.


Traditionally used in teas, sometimes encapsulated and as an extract.
