  • I’m native to NY state and Tompkins county.

     

    I will grow in full sun, but prefer part shade.

     

    I can spread so work well for those shady areas where you need something to fill in.

     

    *Native Americans were thought to use a decoction from my roots for a snakebite remedy.

     

    *Settlers who drank milk from cows who had eaten me often developed the disease called milk sickness.

     

    I’m a host plant for the Ruby Tiger Moth.
