Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis)
Grow your own Yerba Mate and enjoy this popular South American tea as an alternative beverage to coffee. In Latin America, Yerba Mate is the beverage of choice and has a smoother taste than green tea, plus it’s loaded with antioxidants. The plant itself makes a wonderful potted plant for its graceful full-leafed branches. Under warm temperatures, it grows throughout the year, even in the north as a potted plant with flowers arriving during the winter and spring months. The leaves can be harvested once the plant is established.
Hardiness Zone 10
Bloom Season Spring, Winter
Sun Requirement Full Sun, Partial Sun
Grows to 2-4'

  1. Exceeded expectations Review by Nik
    How do you rate this product?

    Received two plants in very good condition. I bought these because Yerba mate is one of my favorite drinks and i have dreams of harvesting some from my own greenhouse. I transplanted into gallon pots after about 3 days and less than two weeks later they have doubled in size. I want to buy more of these so i can have my own yerba mate factory :) (Posted on 1/23/2016)

  2. Very nice plant! Review by Travis
    How do you rate this product?

    This plant has survived for several months now and seems to be healthy. It took about two weeks and then began to grow and after i moved it to another window with more sun it has stoped growing for the last month. This Plant has been something i wanted for making Yerba Mate for a while and with this growth rate i feel it will be a while but so worth the wait. (Posted on 10/13/2014)
