Description

Yellowroot is a native deciduous shrub of eastern North America that can be found in it native habitat from New York to West Virginia and south to Florida and Alabama.  It is not typically available commercially, but in its natural habitat is found on edges of streams or damp woods in sandy soil under a canopy of dappled sunlight. In North Carolina, it is found in the mountains and Piedmont areas. It grows 1-3 feet tall and spreads by suckers. Flowers appear in spring in drooping panicles and fall color is yellow to reds.

It will grow in well-drained moist sandy or clay loams in partial sun to shade. The best fall color occurs with some sun. Use this plant as a ground cover on banks of streams, woodland gardens and naturalized areas.

Its common name, Yellowroot, comes from the roots of the plant, which are yellow.  The roots and stems can be used in dye making.  Stems have also been used in basket weaving.
