After 20 Years, Saudi Ginseng is once again Found in the Northern Borders Region.

RIYADH: In the deserts of the Northern Border region, Saudi ginseng, an evergreen shrub with yellow flowers, has made a comeback after a 20-year hiatus, according to a Saudi Press Agency report on Wednesday.

The plant, also known as ashwagandha, Saudi ginseng, or Al-Abab, has resurfaced in the area after more than 20 years, according to Nasser Rashid Al-Majlad, president of the Amana Environmental Association in the area.

Al-Majlad noted that the area has a unique natural vegetation cover, which makes it rich in wild plants with high economic value. These plants can be used as a natural resource to boost tourism and human development, fight desertification, expand green spaces, increase biodiversity, and support a green economy that balances the needs of the environment and the economy for the benefit of both people and the planet. An enthusiast for vegetation cover, Khonaysser of Wadi Al-Anazi observed the Saudi ginseng plant outside of Arar. He ascribed this to the region’s growing green spaces and the recent uptick in rainfall. He added that the plant could be used for a number of things now that it had returned.
