 o
Shade Native?

I don't remember purchasing/planting this. I have a few in a very dry, shady bed. Each is growing as a single stem from the ground with 2 leaves. From what I recall in spring the flower was a fuzzy small pom-pom about the size of this bunch of berries. I did some searching but kept coming up with Bunchberry but the leaves and flower don't seem to match. The leaves are quite fuzzy. The bigger leaf in these pictures is 7 1/2" x 5 1/2",
Any help with ID is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry this one with the berries close up is blurry. My camera would not cooperate.

Goldenseal.

Take good care of it. It's become quite rare in many places from over collecting.

Thanks for the information. It actually says "absent" in NH, even though it is said to be found/endangered in a couple adjoining states. I really don't remember buying it, so I'm very thankful to a bird that might have bestowed this gift on me! I have a little colony in the bed so I'm very pleased to find out what it is, and do hope it expands.
