Mainly known as the American Alumroot, this herbaceous perennial is a part of the Saxifragaceae family. A rosette of basal leaves surrounds the tall stalks that shoot from the center of the plant. These elongated stalks show off yellowish-green flowers, usually blooming in the summer months. This particular plant has no fragrance to it and it also many shades of green. The whole plant is covered in tiny, soft, white hairs.
Very low maintenance, American Alumroot is drought tolerant and likes full sun exposure, but will tolerate a partly shady spot. It grows best in hardiness zones three through nine. Although it depends on mainly breezy conditions for seed dispersal, sometimes bees, hummingbirds and butterflies may lend a helping hand.
