Geum rivale / Chocolate Root


Beautiful are a border plant. We use Chocolate Root along edges. Wonderful for rain gardens.

A flowering herb of northern wetlands. The urn-shaped maroon flowers and deeply colored awns add exotic color to the spring landscape. The roots can be brewed to make a chocolate-like beverage. It is tasty but labor intensive as the roots are fairly small.

Also called Purple Avens and Water Avens.
