Arrowleaf Balsamroot is a wildflower native to the western half of the USA. Native Americans including the Nez Perce, Kootenai, Cheyenne, and Salish, used the plant for food and medicine. Foraging animals, especially horses find the plant palatable. It has also been used as fabric dye. Arrowleaf Balsamroot has showy yellow sunflower-like blooms. It grows between 1'-2' tall in small groups, and is a sure sign of spring. It is a cooler weather plant and the bright flower-heads turn into seed-pods as the summer temperatures rise. This self-seeding perennial is drought tolerant, and a prize in any natural or xeriscape garden. These seeds were wild crafted in Idaho in June 2010. There may be some chaff in the seeds. Germination has not been tested. The seeds were stratified for spring 2011.
