Stevia rebaudiana

A beautifully decorative leafy plant that is grown in pots, both indoors and outdoors. The plant originates in South America. The small leaves are used as a natural sweetener and they are said to be about 300 times sweeter than sugar. The sweet leaves are nice to chew  on as a sweet treat (though not easily digestable, so don't swallow). Add them to smoothies, or dry them and ground to powder for use as a sweetener in the kitchen.

Can be stored indoors in winter, bright and cool.
