Red root is a member of the buckthorn family also known by a variety of common names, such as Mountain Lilac, Redshank, Desert Buckthorn and New Jersey Tea.

The pinkish-red roots, which possess a spicy almost mint-like aroma, are harvested in spring and usually cut before completely dried. Red root is rarely prepared in any form other than a decoction or tincture.
