Osmorhiza claytonii is a North American perennial herb, native to Canada and the eastern United States. It is also known as Clayton's sweetroot[3] or sweet cicely, a name it shares with other members of its genus Osmorhiza.[4][5][6]

The leaves are yellowish green. There are white hairs on the stem and to a lesser extent on the leaves as well. It is ternately branched, having three-leafed branches. When broken it has an anise like smell or flavor.

The seeds of this plant have barbs on the end allowing them to stick to clothing, fur, or feathers.

Osmorhiza claytonii is a herbaceous plant perennial tall (45-90 cm) and pubescent. Leaves large, compound, deeply divided, and dentate. Flowers small (1.5 mm), white, clustered with others on a long-stalked umbel. Its native habitats include rich woods and wooded slopes.[7]
