The term is today generally limited to the green plants, which form an unranked clade Viridiplantae (Latin for "green plants"). This includes the flowering plants, conifers and other gymnosperms, ferns, clubmosses, hornworts, liverworts, mosses and the green algae, and excludes the red and brown algae. Historically, plants formed one of two kingdoms covering all living things that were not animals, and both algae and fungi were treated as plants; however all current definitions of "plant" exclude the fungi and some algae, as well as the prokaryotes (the archaea and bacteria).
At Kings Co we have three raised bed gardens where we grow a variety of heirloom and conventional Chinese herbs & vegetables. Our full sun varietals include Ichiban Eggplant, Shooting Star Eggplant, Tien Chin Cucumber, Globe Cucumber, Gogi Berries & Nasturtiams.
The partial sun beds house our Yardlong Beans, Ginger, Shiso, Honeysuckle Bush & Holy Basil while our shade bed is the home to all of our Pennsylvania Heirloom Mint, Blue Star Kale, Bergamot & Chinese Leeks.
Check out some of our current plant residents below or better yet stop by during our growing season and have a drink in the garden.
