Red Root is native in Canada to Manitoba, south to Nebraska, Texas and South Carolina. It is sometimes called Jersey Tea because it was used as a substitute for tea during the American Revolutionary War. It is an especially good landscape plant because of its hardiness and exceptional flowering habits that have also earned it the name Wild Snowball. It can withstand inhospitable conditions due to the presence of massive, woody, deep red colored roots that can reach diameters of up to 8 inches. The root is very bitter and astringent and has been used as a mouthwash, gargle for sore throats, and other areas of lymphatic stagnation. It is considered a Lymphatic Alterative and can be used in all forms of sluggish lymph function.
