Called “ague weed” by Native Americans, the settlers called it Indian Sage. It has also been referred to as thoroughwort, sweating plant, feverwort, crosswort, and wild sage. The Chippewa Indians charmed deer by rubbing the root fibers of the herb boneset on the whistles they made to call deer.
A summer perennial, boneset flowers in July and August. It grows wild in wet, sunny meadows, often growing near milkweed.
