Orris Root Peeled (Cut & Sifted)

Orris root is the dried, aged rootstock of a variety of “bearded” iris commonly known as Purple Flag. Although the roots resemble ginger root in appearance, they take on an aroma similar to the violet after curing. The cut and sifted root can be tinctured, but is most often used in herb pillows, linen sachets and potpourri.
Also Known As iris, flag iris, pale iris, bearded iris, fleur-de-lis, garden iris, german iris, iris germanica var. florentina, iris florentina, iris pallida, iris germanica, blue flower de luce
