Yellowroot

Yellowroot is a curious shrub related to the Buttercup.  It is native to eastern U.S.  The compound leaves are deciduous but turn bright yellow in the fall. The roots are bright yellow when cut. Typically it grows in shady streamside sites which do not flood and it can be grown in half to full shade in South or more sun in the North. Bears small purple flowers in spring. Forms masses so can be used as a groundcover plant.
