From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

See text

Osmorhiza is a genus of North American perennial herbs, known generally as Sweet Cicely or Sweetroot. Osmorhiza longistylis was used by Native Americans to treat digestive disorders and as a wash for wounds.

The seeds of this plant have barbs on the end allowing them to stick to clothing, fur, or feathers.
