(Schizandra chinensis) This lovely fruiting vine comes to us from the mountains of China and the Russian far east. It does well in moist shady places where few fruit plants thrive but it will also grow in full sun. It produces large clusters of round red fruit. The leaves have a lemon scent. The fruit is acidic and very aromatic. They are dried and used in medicinal teas. Or, sweetened, the fruits are used to make a juice or preserves that is said to be stimulating and energy restoring. Grow on a trellis, arbor or similar structure. The fragrant white flowers are self-fertile and fruits should begin to appear in about three years. USDA Zones 4-8.

Size: 1 Gallon Pot


Ask a Question
  • Does this require a pollinator?

    No, it is does not.

  • I plan to plant this along with jostaberry along my fence. How far apart should they be planted ?

    This plant is a climbing vine that requires full shade to thrive. It can die in full or even partial sun.

  • will it reseed

    If its fruits mature it should be able to.

  • How tall (or long) does this vine grow? Do birds tend to eat the berries? Thank you!

One of the Best Companies I've delt with yet!!

Both plants were larger and had a better root system than any other mail ordered plants I've received so far; and I have ordered a lot of plants. A++ rating

In wonderful shape on arrival, all the way to Ohio. Healthy and bushy, and a few feet tall already, with plenty of vines!

It's thriving and happy in pine shade.

I have a shaded section under pine trees that is always a challenge for planting but it's an interesting quest to find what will be happy. In that section of my garden, I get them established then it's adapt or...well you know. I always look for unusual plants when I came across the Eastern Prince. Asian origin plants seem to love my northern CT backyard. The Eastern Prince fit that and it also has flowers and berries. So, I planted the Eastern Prince hoping it wouldn't mind being a little drier under the pines. Much to my surprise, this spring, it has grown and it seems happy. I am so pleased, that I am going to get another one.
