Rhodiola rosea is one of 90 Rhodiola species (55 of which are in China and 30 in Tibet) that resemble sedum and are members of the Crassulaceae family. Both genera are called'stonecrops' because they thrive in dry rocky regions. Many species are used interchangeably. R. crenulata, R. sacra, R. algida, R. dumulosa, R. henyri, R. rosea, R. yunnanensis, R. kirilowii, R. sachalinensis. R. rosea loves arid sandy soil and grows in the arctic regions of Europe and Asia.
Canada and the U.S. grow Rhodiola. In the U.S., it's native to eastern Maine and southern Vermont (where it's rare and threatened) and introduced to Connecticut, Alaska, Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. It may also be found in hilly sections of several other states. This plant possesses a rose-scented rhizome, hence 'rosea.' The generic name is taken from the Greek word for rose, 'rhodon'
R. rosea is wild-harvested after 20 years. In recent years, this herbal supplement's popularity led to overharvesting. Several states and countries are attempting to safeguard this endangered species. Thus, R. rosea is in high demand globally.
