    That was a good article. Thanks. Reminds me since I moved from the country. The hillsides around here dont have alot of jack in the pulpit like back home. even at the gamelands where I hunt.

    American ginseng, Panax quinquefolium, is a woodland herb that grows throughout the East, from Maine to the Carolinas and across Georgia, Alabama and Mississipi to the eastern borders of Kansas and Nebraska. It thrives in rich, humusy soil that drains well, and it needs shade. (It is not to be confused with Chinese ginseng, or Panax ginseng, which is native to Asia and cultivated widely in Korea.)


    The answer to your question at the beginning of the post.
    "is there ginseng that grows in kansas?"
