Beijing Grass is an exotic medicinal herb that comes from the Spiderwort family of plants.  Although it's rare and hard to find, Beijing Grass actually grows very easily. It's a low-lying grassy perennial ground cover that grows and spreads very quickly. Plant in the ground or in pots! Beijing grass can be overwintered easily indoors. The smooth green leaves are about 3 to 6 inches long, and can be eaten raw, cooked or juiced.

Beijing Grass has been an important healing herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. It helps to support and strengthen the immune system, detoxify the body, and aid in respiratory healing. It is an effective anti-inflammatory, is rich in flavonoids, syringic acid,  and glycosphingolipids (G1B) which prevent free radicals and work to inhibit cancerous cells.
