We begin shipping forest roots after they go dormant, around the end of September. Feel free to pre-order these live dormant roots. First come, first served.
Stoneroot Live Root (Collinsonia canadensis), organic
$7.00 – $36.00
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. We ship roots inside the US only.
Hardy to Zones 4 to 8
(Stone Root, Richweed) Sturdy, handsome broad-leaved plant bears bright panicles of yellow flowers that smell like lemons. Tincture of the fresh, stone-hard root helps shrink varicosities—general vascular tonic of great utility. Stoneroot likes moist soils in the dappled shade of woodland or shade garden. And, the bees love stone root, it provides some of the best nectar available in the forest understory. Cultivation: Upon receipt, plant the roots 2 inches deep in the mineral soil and cover with mulch. A lot of people will have trouble determining which end is up so when possible we leave a piece of the old stem attached, and this should be oriented pointing up. That will help. Plant in fall for emergence in spring. these are large, robust, and extremely beautiful. Enjoy.
