plant overview
dyeing yellow with coptis

Coptis chinensis is a perennial evergreen native to China, where it is also known as Chinese goldthread and Huang lian. As a goldthread species and member of the Ranunculaceae family of flowering plants, it is related to the common buttercup. The root, which is harvested in the fall, yields a yellow dye due to the presence of an alkaloid called berberine. Coptis root also contains other active organic compounds, including hydrastine, coptisine and palmatine.
