Beloved spring-blooming Western wildflower, edible and extremely drought-tolerant.
Nothing says spring like hiking through hillsides of bright yellow balsamroot. The entire plant is edible and has been used medicinally by Native Americans, who showed its benefits to Lewis and Clark. Plants develop a 6' long taproot, making them resistant to drought, grazing, and fire. Full sun!
Seeds were sustainably wildcrafted in the Great Basin by Kyle and friends at Native-Seed Company and grown by Joseph Lofthouse in Paradise, Utah and Twisp River Seeds in Twisp, Washington.
