Woodland Root Beer Plant -Aromatic Root

Provided the licorice flavor to root beer. Found in rich woods from Quebec to Kansas. A Menominee dish was made using the root of spikenard, wild onion, gooseberry and sugar. The blanched young spring shoots were also eaten. The fruit is relished by wild turkey. Grows best in part to full shade. A long–lived perennial spikenard can reach up to 6 feet in moist soil but is usually half that in cultivation. Multi-seeded in pots. Seed source from Michigan’s upper peninsula near Lake Superior
