The Plant Attraction


Pogostemon cablin
Also known as: Patchouli

Here is native to the island region of Southeast Asia, including Sri Lanka, Indonesia, the Malay Peninsula, New Guinea and the Philippines. It is also found in many parts of North East India. Noted for its fragrant essential oil, it has many commercial uses and is now extensively cultivated in tropical climates around the world. The plant grows as a bushy perennial herb, with erect stems reaching up to 2.5 ft in height and bearing small, pale purple-white flowers.
The heavy, strong, woody, and earthy scent of patchouli has been used for centuries in perfumes, and more recently in incense, insect repellents, chewing tobacco, and many alternative medicines to treat colds, headaches, fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, insect and snake bites. It is antibacterial and anti fungal. Leaves have been used to make a herbal tea and in some cultures, the leaves are eaten as a vegetable or used as a seasoning.

It grows well in warm to tropical climates. It thrives in hot, humid weather but not extended periods of direct sunlight. If the plant withers due to lack of water, it tends to recover quickly after rain or watering. It can easily be potted and grown indoors for those in cold regions.
USDA zones: 9-11
