Hydrastis canadensis

goldenseal

Goldenseal isthat plant you keep hearing about for use in supplements, but we love it most of all for its beauty in the ground. White flowers are quickly followed by brilliant red raspberry-shaped, inedible fruits. Plant in neutral, less acidic soils for best results.
