Field Sketching: Yellow-root

A folk remedy

Yellow-root, medicinal

Dainty purple blooms.

Art Prescription: Most people walk right by and never see the tiny yellow-root blooms.

They are tiny, and beautiful! This plant has been used as a natural antibiotic among other remedies.

  1. My Mom and Grandma would gather this and cook it down. During flu season it was always in the refrigerator in a Mason jar. Our flu remedy. 🙂
