Butterbur Live Root (Petasites palmatus), organic

(3 customer reviews)

$5.00$27.00

ROOTS ship starting late September.  If you order ROOTS along with seeds, the seeds will ship first and the roots will follow in season. We dig after dormancy in order to assure a good bud set–usually beginning in late August and ending early December.

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Zones 6 to 10

Herbaceous perennial.  Native to the Western US.  The plant bears luxurious, umbrella-shaped leaves. Traditional use (TWM, Native American):  Antitussive, pain relief, poultice to swellings, rheumatic joints.  Contains Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids, generally recommended for external use only.  Plant prefers gravelly soils, regular garden soils, and/or streamside habitat.  Will take sun or shade.  Easily grown from a root, just nestle the root into the surface of the soil with the rootlets going down the rhizome (the long, fat part) about half covered with soil.  Keep watered until the root sends up leaves.  After that, water occasionally.

  2. Question

    Would you consider butterbur a “starchy” root? I have a friend looking into herbal pain relief for her son, but he’s on a Specific Carbohydrate Diet and can’t use starch.

      I think it is starchy but I don’t think the starch would be found in the tincture.
