Balsamorhiza sagittata, commonly known as arrowleaf balsamroot, is a flowering perennial plant native to western North America. It belongs to the sunflower family (Asteraceae) and is known for its distinctive arrow-shaped leaves and bright yellow flowers.

Arrowleaf balsamroot typically grows in a variety of habitats, including grasslands, meadows, foothills, and open woodlands. It prefers well-drained soils and is often found in areas with full sun exposure. The plant has a deep taproot system, which allows it to withstand drought conditions and stabilize soil.

The name "balsamroot" comes from the resinous sap found in the roots, which has historically been used by indigenous peoples for various purposes, including as a medicinal treatment for wounds and sore muscles.

In the spring, arrowleaf balsamroot produces tall flower stalks adorned with large, showy yellow flowers. These flowers are an important food source for pollinators such as bees and butterflies and provide early-season nectar for a variety of wildlife.

Arrowleaf balsamroot is also valued for its aesthetic appeal and is sometimes cultivated in gardens for its attractive foliage and flowers. Additionally, it plays a role in ecosystem restoration efforts, as it can help stabilize soils, prevent erosion, and provide habitat for native wildlife.
