Yellowroot - 2 Gal.

$33.99

Xanthorhiza simplicissima

Yellowroot is a fantastic woody groundcover that easily spreads to form a 1-3’ tall dense carpet, even in shade. It thrives in average to moist, slightly acidic soil. Small purple flowers bloom in spring and later produce star-shaped fruits that are eaten by birds and other small animals. It is the perfect plant to use as transition between sun and shade, and wet to dry. But, it is perhaps best loved for its outstanding fall color that starts out clear yellow before changing to red and purple.
