Szechuan Pepper, Zanthoxylum planispinum
Winged Prickly Ash - A synonym of Zanthoxylum armatum. A deciduous shrub growing to 3 metres. Flowers in May followed by peppercorns in autumn. Suitable for most soil types, including clay although it prefers moist soil. It can grow in sun or semi-shade. The peppercorns are ground into a powder and used as a condiment. A light roasting brings out more of the flavour. The seed is an essential ingredient of the famous Chinese Five Spice mixture. The young leaves are eaten too. Priced for: 2 litre pot 50-60 cm in height.
