Notes: Glycyrrhiza lepidota (Wild Licorice), is a pea/bean family plant, suitable for part to full shade areas. It is not the source of licorice candy flavoring, but is super sweet and notoriously raises blood pressure, but great for many wildlife species including our pollinators. Noted as deer-resistant by UVM as having aromatic foliage.
Native to NE (except VT, NH), Midwest, South and West US: Biota of North America Program (BONAP) – North American Plant Atlas (NAPA).
