    Default Codonopsis Pilosula.

    While walking in the park this morning I dropped into the herb garden.
    I hadn't been in there for a good while,
    I spotted this plant that I never noticed before.
    When I got home I googled it.
    It's a member of the bells family.
    It's used in Chinese medicine.
    It's known as poor man's ginseng and has pale pink bell flowers.
    Anybody else heard of it or even grown it?

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

    Rudyard Kipling.
