Uganda hagenia (Hagenia abyssinica) is a medicinal flowering plant that thrives in the equatorial forests of the county, especially in the west as African redwood trees. It has the Swahili name of mlozilozi. Its flowers grow into long sizes of 30 to 60 centimeters in orange or pink and other related hazy colors. It is a hot and wet climate tree that does well under precipitation levels of at least 1000 millimeters of rain yearly and at altitudes of over 2000 meters above sea level.
The original home of the hagenia species was the East African highlands of Ethiopia. This means that the tree is also native to Uganda which is united to Ethiopia by the Great Rift Valley. Folk uses of the flower date to the ancient times where the ground pistils would provide potions against parasites. By the 1900s, the use of the drug in modern medicine made it one of the excuses folks gave not to go to work as they were undergoing ‘medication.’ We source the hagenia flowers from the western region of the country where it thrives under natural conditions. Though it is possible to source the flowers from the forests, we only go for those that have grown in family growers’ farms. Our sources normally plant the trees under Global Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) conditions. There are usually about ten trees for every 1.6 acres of land.
We harvest Uganda hagenia at dawn when the sun is yet to come out. We then convey the cut stems and sometimes bark from the tree in buckets, sacks or baskets. We dry them in the sun so that they can be ready to pound into the local market measures of hagenia powder. This constitutes of 8 to 16 grams for the average portions. The largest packets of the powder weigh 35 grams. Rather than export the raw flowers, we process the female pistils of Uganda hagenia. Our trained workers separate the two genders of the flowers in readiness for pounding the female ones to produce a paste. Each kilo of the paste consists of around 40, 000 seeds. To this, we add some extracts from the bark that are also improvements to the floral paste.

There are also universal bottles that house the powder in airtight condition and show off the stuff in their transparent material.
