Name: The Saskatoon berry (Amelanchier alnifolia Nutt, Rosaceae, Alder-Leaf Shadbush). Saskatoon berries seemed to have got the name from a shortened version of the Blackfoot name for the berry: mis-ask-a-tomina or the Cree name: mis-ask-quah-toomina. The origin of Amelachier is uncertain but it is what the French call the plant, which means Alder-leafed (St.-Pierre, 1991). Description: A hardy medium to tall shrub bush part of the rose family. The Rosaceae is a very large plant family that includes the apples, plums, cherries, and roses (St-Pierre, 1991).
Their yellow flowers are in graceful clusters. The genus goldenrods contain about 100 species, most of which are North American in origin. The Canada goldenrod, one of the commonest species, is of average height and has large panicles of small yellow flowers. The smaller sweet goldenrod has anise-scented leaves used to make herb tea. The wreath goldenrod, a low-growing species, is found in shady places.

This large flower is generally found in early spring, and are not often found in places with a lot of shade, it prefers to live in woody areas, and edges of bluffs. Depending on what stage the bloodroot is in, it is anywhere from 3-12 inches tall with basal leaves that are only around 3-5 inches overall. These basal leaves and tightly grasped around the stalk of an individual flower, there are also times when two stalks are produced when the flower begins to bloom.

The root is composed of many thick tubers, fastened together by fleshy fibres which spreads greatly underground, sending out many small fibers at the joints, which strike downward. The stems are solitary mostly branched, one to two feet high, crowned with two large, smooth leaves, stalked, peltate in the center like an umbrella the size of a human hand.
