The History Of Goldenseal Plant

Goldenseal Plant is a plant with a history! Also known as orange root and yellow puccoon, indigenous peoples used it in parts of North America for thousands of years, and it remains popular with herbalists and natural healers today.

You may have seen it in deep shade in the woods. The name comes from the rhizome’s yellow color and sap, traditionally used as a dye. In botanical terms,
Hydrastis canadensis L. is described as a forb: a broadleaf (non-grass, characterized by broad leaves rather than needles) herbaceous (never developing wood) perennial flowering plant. It has an underground rhizome system, sometimes called a creeping rootstock, meaning that its stem grows horizontally underground and produces branching roots in the same way as iris.

The Goldenseal Plant is a small plant with a distinct appearance that is likely to be confused with any other plant. In the spring, dark green, slightly wrinkled, multi-lobed leaves appear on forked stems. The leaves usually span 3-12 inches.

A small white flower without petals will appear on the top leaves, eventually turning into a raspberry-like fruit later in the summer. Each fruit yields up to 30 black seeds.

Although its natural range used to extend from Quebec southward to Georgia and from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River basin, the plant is endangered in the wild due to overharvesting.

In its ideal environment, it is a naturally resistant plant with few pests or diseases. The rhizome grows and spreads horizontally outward year after year. It is sure to be a unique addition to anyone’s garden!

Soil Preferences: Loamy, rich in organic matter, pH 5.5-6.5; add lime to increase growth if the soil is too acidic; respond well to top-dressing and mulching.

Water: Moist but well-drained; does well on slopes and raised beds.

Flowering Habit: Single white flower April-May, followed by a red berry-like fruit in midsummer

Propagation: Best results from rhizome pieces over ½ inch with attached roots and at least one bud
