About Patchouli Plants

Grow your own Patchouli plants for its many fragrant uses! Patchouli is a member of the Lamianceae family, which also includes well-known herbs like lavender, oregano, and mint. Despite its scientific name, Pogostemon cablin, this perennial herb is commonly referred to by a variety of names, including stink weed, pucha pot, and putcha-pat. Patchouli’s distinctive fragrance has made it a highly valued herb among enthusiasts for its versatility in applications ranging from aromatherapy and perfume to repellents.

How to Grow Patchouli

Patchouli needs plenty of sunlight to grow well. Choose a location that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. It is a warm-weather herb that is frost sensitive. Although this herb doesn’t produce showy flowers, its full, shrub-like qualities add contrast and fill up space in beds and borders.

A perennial herb in warmer climates, patchouli does prefer to grow in partial shade and although it needs frequent watering, it is a resilient plant and can recover quickly even after a prolonged period of drought or wilting.

You can start harvesting patchouli leaves as soon as the plant is established. Cut the leaves off at the stem, and new growth will emerge. Regular harvesting will keep the plant producing fresh leaves for fragrance.

If you’re looking to add a unique and fragrant herb to your garden, consider growing patchouli.
