Native to the Appalachias. A self-supporting herbaceous perennial vine, this plant is distinguished by its oddly-shaped leaves, the equally curious flower it bears, and especially by its highly aromatic and terebinthe root, which for such a small plant has nonetheless figured predominantly in legend, folklore and herbal history. Virginia snakeroot prospers in clearings in the forest, under the tree canopy, or in the shade garden. It likes undisturbed, moist, acidic soils. The plant is rare and difficult to find in the wild, and this is one of the few places worldwide where nursery-grown seedlings can be procured.
