Hydrastis canadensis, known as goldenseal, is an eastern North American native with large, textured, lobed, umbrella-like leaves. The flowers emerge right from the leaf surface of the topmost leaf. They have no petals but showy white and yellowish green stamens. The fruits are green then orange then red and resemble a large raspberry sitting on the leaf. Goldenseal has a long history in traditional and herbal medicine though can be poisonous in large quantities.
