Delivered quickly with plants in good condition. They were rather potbound (i.e. they've been growing in the pot so long that their roots have become very cramped - hence 4 rather than 5 stars) but have transplanted very happily and several weeks later look healthy though not yet actively growing much.

Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) Herb in 9cm Pot
Stevia Rebaudiana is a perennial herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil. As the climate in the UK is much cooler, Stevia is considered a tender plant and will need to be protected from frost, it will happily over-winter on a bright windowsill in a cool room where it will make an attractive evergreen shrub. Highly prized in South America, this astonishing plant has been grown there for centuries for its incredibly sweet-tasting leaves. This attractive, white-flowered cultivar is known for its branching habit, which creates a naturally bushy plant, Stevia has many upright stems that hold the oval toothed bright green leaves, and in summer, it will produce a pale flower.
Stevia is becoming known as a natural sweetener, as the glycosides in its leaves, including up to 10% Stevioside, account for its incredible sweetness and make it unique among the nearly 300 species of Stevia plants, it is now used widely in the food and drinks industry as an organic and harmless sugar supplement or substitute.
