General Information

Maianthemum racemosum (Treacleberry, False Solomon's Seal, Solomon's plume or False Spikenard; syn. Smilacina racemosa) is a species of flowering plant in the family Ruscaceae, native to North America.


A poultice made from the roots of this plant was used as an effective treatment for sunburns by American Indians. The roots of this plant were often dried and then smoked by several Eastern Native American tribes as a treatment for hyperactivity in children and emotional depression. The plant was also used by Native Americans as a cough suppressant.


When young, Maianthemum racemosum may closely resemble members of the genus Veratrum, a highly toxic member of the Lily family to which it is distantly related. Consequently, this plant should not be consumed unless identification is positive.
