General description and domicile:
Gelsemium Sempervirens is native to North and Central America and can be found in coastal regions in moist woodlands from Virginia to Mexico. It is a very attractive creeper that can climb up host trees to a great height, often hanging in tresses from one to the other.

Warning: Extreme care must be taken with this plant as it is poisonous in significant doses.

The fresh root and/or runners are used in the homeopathic remedy.
