Artist's Description

Dwarf Crested Iris here are found in the Greenbrier area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. So often we get in to big a rush, to get where we are going, to really take in the small beauties of the forest floor.
Native Americans found many uses for the roots of
Iris cristata. They chewed the roots to alleviate thirst. An
ointment was made from the roots and applied to cancerous
ulcers. A tea from the roots was used in the treatment of hepatitis.
Cherokees made a compound decoction of pulverized root and
used it as a salve for ulcers. Also they used it for yellow urine and kidneys.
