|Ships Year Round|
Native to the eastern part of the U.S. and the southeastern portion of Canada, the Goldenseal plant (Hydrastis canadensis) is a perennial herb valued for its medicinal properties. Native Americans have long used Goldenseal for treating inflammation, helping to heal infections, and as an ingredient in topical designed to promote the healing of wounds. Goldenseal produces showy white flowers in spring that ripen into fleshy red berries in late summer and autumn. Goldenseal will naturalize over a period of time provided conditions are right such as in a wild woodland garden at the edge of the property.
The Goldenseal Plant Likes it Shady
Like many North American natives, Goldenseal needs a certain amount of shade in order to thrive. It makes an excellent addition to woodland or shade garden and mixes well with Solomon's Seal, Trillium, and May Apples. Its attractive, bold foliage display and attractive berries make it an excellent option for lining a woodland path in naturalized areas. If planted in a container on the porch or patio, it should be placed in an area where it's shielded from the harsh rays of the midday sun, and the container should have adequate drainage so the plants don't get root rot.
The Goldenseal Plant Needs Well-Drained, Rich Soil
Because of its preference for a natural woodland environment, Goldenseal shouldn't be included in sunny culinary herb gardens — allow it to sparkle in the shade instead. Too much bright sun
Goldenseal thrives best in woodland soils containing large amounts of humus and other organic matter, so be sure to work plant-based compost into the soil prior to planting and to put down a layer of compost on an annual basis to help keep the soil nutritious and healthy. If placing Goldenseal in a naturalized part of the property, homeowners should leave some of the fallen leaves on the ground in autumn so that they can contribute to the organic composition of the soil as they decompose.
Although Goldenseal does best when soils are moist, it can languish if planted in an area where its roots are constantly wet, well-drained soil is essential for the successful cultivation of this plant. Heavy clay soils should be amended prior to planting to promote good drainage, and the plant should be thoughtfully sited to avoid low-lying parts of the property. Goldenseal does well on rises and toward the tops of hills and slopes.
The Goldenseal Plant is a Protected or Endangered Species in Many Area
Because Goldenseal has been classified as a protected or endangered species in many parts of the country, harvesting wild plants is not recommended, and in fact may be illegal depending on where you live. Always purchase Goldenseal seeds or rhizomes from reputable suppliers to ensure that they've been ethically sourced.
