Brew 'Immortality' and enjoy the healthy benefits of this sweet-flavored curing tea! Grown in a pot or hanging basket, the vines will cascade over the edge for a dramatic decorative effect; if allowed to grow up a trellis or supported by stakes, the vines will reach up to 25' long.

Immortality trailing plant
May 26, 2017
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
I was so glad to find that I had purchased the immortality herb here at Hills Nursery, I shop online for plants all the time and I can honestly say that Hills Nursery is the best, and believe me I have tried most out there. But anyway this plant is so fun to watch grow, I have it growing up a trellis in a pretty shaded area and it's doing great. I love to go outside and see that another trailer can be hung on the trellis, and I can't wait to make my first cup of tea. I had an elderly woman tell me to not pick the first year growth so I'm waiting. I am very happy with all the purchases I've made and will purchase more tonight, or if I get to sleepy tomorrow. Lol. God bless and happy gardening to all.
