Similarly, you may ask, does ginseng grow in the Northwest?
Ginseng, known as 'sang' in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, is a native plant from Maine to Georgia and from the East Coast to the Pacific Northwest. Ginseng grows wild in several other parts of the world as well and has been used as a medicinal plant in the Orient for ages.
Ginseng can also be grown successfully indoors using containers with drainage reservoirs placed out of direct sunlight. Seeds are to be sown in the fall at a depth of about 1 ½ inches, while roots should be planted under 3 inches of soil and do best when planted in early spring.
