A native of southern Europe, the autumn mandrake (Mandragora autumnalis) is a perennial herb with thick tuberous roots. In ancient Egypt, it was very popular as a beer additive, while in Medieval Europe many magical properties were connected to the
mandrake, especially its root. If the root form resembled a human being, complete with arms, legs and head, it was considered a death sentence to pull it out of the ground. However, those who possessed such a mandrake root and cared for it could expect great wealth and success according to popular belief.
Both species, Mandragora officinarum and the present autumn mandrake, Mandragora autumnalis, can be grown from seed and planted out in the open land in temperate climates. You'll find Common mandrake seeds here.

The plant is very poisonous and should not be planted in gardens where toddlers play!
