Notes for Identification: This plant can be weedy or invasive according to the authoritativeerect perennial from deep, extensive, woody rhizomes. Our wild licorice has a broad range from western ontario to washington, south to texas, mexico and missouri. Eastward, there are scattered populations. It is a plant of prairies, meadows and the western shore. It has never been developed as a commercial source of licorice. Surprisingly, the plant is little studied. The teton dakota used the leaves for treating sores on the backs of horses. The leaves were chewed and applied as a poultice. Toothaches were treated by chewing the root, holding a piece of the root in the mouth. The root was also used for treating fever in children. It has a strong bitter taste, which then becomes sweet. In texas, it is called amolillo, which refers to the foaming produced by stirring the root in water. In texas folk tradition, the root tea was used to reduce fever in women after childbirth and to help expel the placenta. Other than a few relatively obscure folk uses of the plant by european settlers and indigenous groups, the plant is little known in the united states. Source: steven foster group
