Potentilla recta (Sulphur Cinquefoil) was a pleasant surprise to find still blooming here after the latest frosts. It is a zone 4 hardy herb and were often only zone 3b at best, so it's a joy to find warm pockets!
I love the delicate yellow blooms of this plant and it's unique leaf structure!! The leaves give the appearance of a hand reaching out to block and protect. According to Matthew Wood in The Book of Herbal Wisdom, “Cinquefoil was used [in folk medicine] to protect people against meddling, interference, and witchcraft.” I've also had folks comment that it reminds them of hemp! ;) Potentilla is an astringent herb that is helpful as a styptic, vascular tonic, and vulnerary. It is even a bit demulcent! It is a depurative (detox supporting) herb, mainly thru diuretic actions, but also a bit of cholagogue actions too. It also has some antirheumatic properties and is a decent lymphatic herb.
It has anti-inflammatory effects in the digestive tract and also has some secondary cardiac actions.
Overall a fantastic and beautiful plant!!! Tho, use caution due to its HIGH level of astringency... It is a level 4, which means VERY drying!
Did you miss our launch? Highlights from each session will be released as a podcast on Soundcloud. Episode 1 was about "Going Back." Get caught up before our next show Oct. 20th (tickets available now!)
