American mandrake is a member of the barberry family that inhabits the woodlands of eastern North America. It is classified as a spring emphemeral, which means that it emerges in early spring and undergoes a furious growth cycle but dies back to the ground when most other forest plants are reaching maturity in mid-summer.
Although all parts of the plant are toxic, Native Americans and early American settlers boiled the root to make topical infusions.
Precautions - This herb is for topical use only.
