Spotted Wintergreen and Poke Root
I just stumbled across a beautiful patch of spotted wintergreen, often called pipsissewa, or Chimaphila maculata in the NC sandhills. The property owner wants to kill everything off next spring... probably with round up. So, I may have 5-8 ounces of this as dried herb if anyone one wants to buy some. I've also identified several poke plants, so I can dig some poke roots - winter killed, so good roots right now. They also have English ivy, holly, dogwood, pine and cedar. Obviously, they won't kill the trees, but I could get some bark or pitch if anyone wants any. I think $5 for a half ounce would be fair based on the wintergreen - small plants, so it would take a lot to to make an ounce... and a lot of stooped digging. If interested, let me know these are good medicinal herbs that don't grow where I live.
