The name, in view of the small content of hydrastis, is misleading.
The hydrastis canadensis has also peculiar claims as a bitter stomachic.
The addition of the extracts of aconite, hydrastis and viburnum prunifolium is likewise unfortunate.
hydrastis canadensis, or Canadian yellow root, is a valuable bitter, and furnishes a useful yellow dye.
I procured four years ago several pounds of green hydrastis root from a digger and set them out in three different patches.
