a little botanical information on stillingia

description
Stillingia sylvatica is a perennial herb of the Euphorbiaceae family.

This herb's angled glabrous stem can grow up to 4 feet in height. When the plant or root is broken or cut stillingia will exude a milky sap.

Its leathery leaves are sessile, tapering at the base. It bears yellow flowers from April to July in a terminal spike. Stillingia's fruit is a three-grained capsule.

The longitudinally-wrinkled grayish brown root grows 1 to 4 inches long and 1 inch or more thick. Under its bark the root is reddish-brown or rose-colored internally. The oleaginous root has a peculiar odor and a unpleasant, bitter taste that is followed by a persistent pungent acridity in mouth and throat.
