Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Glycyrrhiza glabra, or otherwise known as Licorice. This wonderful plant grows wild around the Mediterranean and Asia areas. Licorice is a perennial, a good plant to grow to attract pollinators. Grows well in Zones 6 to 11 Soak seeds overnight or about 24 hours in warm water. Place them in loose, well draining soil 1/4" deep, and keep moist. Sprouting may occur in within 1 to 2 weeks. Some farmers would keep them in the greenhouse for the first year, then when soil temperatures warm to 68°F transplant to full sun. Full maturity can take a few years. Produces gentle delicate purple flowers.
Many uses for Licorice root, try as a tea to help quench thirst, grind into a powder for baking and ice cream.
