Polygonum multiflorum

Fo-Ti is an ancient herb in the Traditional Chinese Medicine, valued as a ‘youth giving tonic’ and supposedly even possessing the ability to reduce gray hair. Be forewarned: fo-ti is a vigorous grower and can become invasive! We have found the perfect place for it – on the fences around the chicken coop. The chickens love to eat it and it is no doubt good for them and they also keep it in check.
