Common Name: Astragalus Propinquus, Mongolian Milkvetch
Binomial name: Astragalus Membranaceus
Astragalus membranaceus is an herbaceous perennial, growing to about 2 feet tall, with sprawling stems. The alternate leaves have 12–24 leaflets. Small, light yellow pea-like flowers arise from leaf axils. I have grown the plant over a three-year period. It is easily grown from seed, though the seed, like many legumes, has a hard coat. If the small kidney-shaped seeds are nicked with a file, or rubbed between sand paper, then soaked in water overnight, they germinate easily, usually within a week. Seeds can be planted outside after the last frost in spring, and will sprout within 2–3 weeks. Astragalus seems to be adaptable to growing conditions. It thrives in a deep, sandy, well-drained, somewhat alkaline soil. Good drainage is important. Once young seedlings develop 4–6 leaves, they can be thinned to a spacing of one foot. The Chinese consider the quality of cultivated roots to be superior to wild-harvested Astragalus roots.
