DESCRIPTION

Balsamorhiza sagittata, BALSAMROOT, also called Arrow-leaved balsamroot, Oregon Sunflower

Arrowleaf balsamroot, a plant of the Asteraceae is fairly common in cold, dry areas of the West, from the Sierra Nevada west to Colorado, and north into Canada. It may be found most abundant in mountain fields, but can also be a common plant in the understory of conifer forests.

Balsamroot has beautiful, bright yellow flowers arising fom large clumps of fuzzy green arrow-shaped leaves. A large, deep, thick taproot completes the name, having a diameter the width of a hand and a branching root going feet deep. The thicker portions are covered with bark. The balsam portion of the name refers to a resin in the root.

Nearly all parts of this plant were used as food by various Native American groups. The roots may be baked or steamed and eaten, as well as the young shoots. The immature flower stems could be peeled and eaten; the flowers themselves are good browse for wildlife. Balsamroot seeds are nutritious and oil-rich, another good source of food. The root could be used as a coffee substitute. It was also used medicinally.
