Highly valued for it's herbal properties, Goldenseal has become a threatened native plant in some areas due to the over-collection of it's rhizomes. Prized more for it's medicinal value than it's beauty, this wildflower bears one, small, rather inconspicuous white flower, which then gives way to an attractive, but inedible cluster of scarlet berries. The early Americans used the rootstock for a variety of purposes, including tonic, diuretic, an insect repellent, and yellow dye! All parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested in large doses. Overall, care should be exercised, not only for your own safety, but for the preservation of this wild, native American plant.
