Balsamroot is a group of perennial wildflowers native to the western United States. They grow up to three feet tall and produce a single, yellow sunflower-like bloom which lasts from May to June. Balsamroot can be found on dry hillsides and meadows, and are very drought tolerant. They prefer full sun and a dry, well-drained soil. Not only are these great plants to include in wildflower mixes, but they have medicinal and edible properties as well.
Arrowleaf Balsamroot does well in wide ranges of annual precipitation: 12-25 inches. It needs low temperatures (32-50 degrees) to germinate, making late fall the optimal time to seed. It's an incredibly hardy plant with deep roots that enable it to survive fire, grazing, heavy foot traffic, and drought. Arrowleaf Balsamroot can also handle altitudes up to 9,000 feet.
USDA Hardiness Zones: 3-10
