Gray’s lovage is a perennial wildflower in the carrot family (Apiaceae) found in mountainous habitat in the Klamath-Siskiyou Mountains and throughout the western United States. It prefers to grow in meadows and on slopes, sometimes in rocky habitat, or in open forests. It can be found in wetland or riparian habitat or out on sunny, dry slopes. The flowers are a compound umbel of many tiny, white flowers that bloom June-August, depending on elevation. Gray’s lovage grows from a taproot to a height of .5′-2.5′ tall. The leaves resemble celery leaves, each divided into several leaflets. Gray’s lovage is a larval host plant forĀ  the anise swallowtail butterfly. The flowers are also used by many species of pollinators. Gray’s lovage has long been used as a medicinal plant by Native Americans and modern herbalists. The common names Gray’s licorice-root, Kishwoof, or Oshala are also used for this species.

Gray’s lovage (Ligusticum grayi) seed packets contain approximately 130 seeds per packet.
