Xanthorhiza simplicissima

Yellow root

Xanthorhiza simplicissima is a small (less than three feet tall) shrub native to streambanks across the southeast. It grows best in moist, well-drained sites with part shade. It suckers and forms attractive low colonies. Inconspicuous fruits ripen in the summer and are eaten by small mammals. Xanthorhiza simplicissima is an excellent low plant to use in restoration projects.
