Vernacular names
English: Bugbane

Trautvetteria is a genus of flowering plants in the buttercup family. Today it is often considered a monotypic genus, containing only one species, Trautvetteria caroliniensis,[1] which is known by the common names Carolina bugbane,[2] false bugbane, and tassel-rue. A second species, T. japonica, is now generally considered a variety of this species.[3] The genus is named for the botanist Ernst Rudolf von Trautvetter.[1]

This plant is native to Asia and eastern and western North America. It grows in moist wooded areas and other habitat. It is a rhizomatous perennial herb producing an erect stem up to 1.5 meters in maximum height. The large leaf has a palmate blade up to 30 or 40 centimeters wide with deeply divided, pointed, toothed lobes. The blade is borne on a long, slender petiole which may measure up to 45 centimeters long. The leaf is green, darker on top and paler underneath. The inflorescence is a panicle with several clusters of flowers on branches. The flower has no petals and is mostly made up of many long, white stamens each up to a centimeter long. At the center is a spherical cluster of green pistils. This develops into a spherical cluster of green fruits.

The plant contains protoanemonin, which may cause blistering or skin irritation.[4]

Stem leaves are deeply lobed (background leaves are Rubus)
