This plant is grown for; its winter flowers, which are white, fragrant, and borne, in clusters growing from the axils of lance-shaped, toothed leaves.

Stevia does not ask for much attention. Moderate watering and a cool, light room will suffice.

Plunge the plants in coal ashes during the summer months and leave them there until late September for December bloom.,

Propagation is from seeds or cuttings; neither method presents any difficulties.
