This unique South American native is used to make a natural sweetener. A small shrub with intensely sweet leaves, Stevia is frost tender and can be grown in a container and brought inside during the winter. Pinching back the new shoots in the summer prevents it from flowering and creates a bushier plant.
Our vigorous, easy to grow Stevia plants will provide abundant, sweet leaves for use in many drinks and dishes. Pinch off any flower buds that appear to maintain vigorous and productive growth.
