Description: Goldenseal Root, or Hydrastis canadensis, is among those natural herbs that are members of the buttercup family. Goldenseal Root is thick and knotted, with a yellowish color. It is a perennial plant that blooms in late May and early June, then bears a single raspberry-like fruit in the summer before it dies back in late September and October.
It has a history of beneficial uses by indigenous North American populations and later came into prominence among settlers in the 1800’s. The plant has remained popular, and threats from over-harvest and habitat loss have placed goldenseal on United Plant Savers’ “at risk” list. Therefore, our organic goldenseal root is carefully cultivated for quality and sustainability.
