Profile: This naturally grown botanical is a treasure. These plants need 7 to 8 years to mature enough to harvest the roots. This farming approach protects wild osha patches. This magnificent herb is threatened by overharvesting.
Osha grows in Rocky Mountain and Southwest meadows. Apiaceae, or carrot family, reflects its look. Osha's leaves resemble parsley and have hollow, reddish stems. In deep, damp soils, the plants develop 6 to 7-foot clumps. Its fibrous, bitter, pungent root is dark brown and wrinkled.
