Butterbur, petasites hybridus, where to find some?

sureturtleJuly 4, 2007

Hi, everyone. Happy 4th of July.

I went to Arboretum and saw this huge plant in the Hosta path area. It is labeled Petasites hybridus Butterbur. From a brief search online I was informed that the plant is hardy in zone 4. Love to have some for the water's edge planting. Would any of you know how to get some? Thanks!

Butterbur is the common name, did the sign indicate which hybrid? Very interesting plant.

I just yanked out some in my back yard (I don't know if it was a hybrid or which one, either, though). It's still sprouting from the root, so if you want to come get some, contact me offline (sooner rather than later). I'd be happy to trade for some rue or ginger.

I have Butterbur, too. Got it from Lynn last year at a swap. Glad to share if you want some.
