General Information

Looks like field gromwell.

The corolla is light yellow and about a centimeter long and wide. This plant was used as a contraceptive by several Native American groups, including the Navajo and Shoshone. Studies on mice showed the plant reduced their fertility.

I have been looking for this herb for some time. No one sells it. Is there a local nursery that sells native plants? Thanking you in advance.
