Over 500 Pictures of Medicinal Herbs

Herb Stock Photography available for licensing, or just view plant pictures to see how many wild herbs you may already be familiar with.

Most herbs that I photograph are in their wild habitat, but I have many pictures of garden herbs as well. A lot of the wild herbs found growing here are native to other parts of the world as well. Some of our wild herbs which are not native are invasive plants imported from other parts of the world; such as Honeysuckle, Kudzu and Perilla. Some of the common herbs that can be harvested here and used to make your own herbal remedies are dock, passionflower, yarrow, poke, rabbit tobacco, evening primrose just to name a few.

Ginseng herb picture


Ginseng is a "good herb". We should keep our ginseng in North America.
Much of the wild ginseng sold to dealers goes to Asia because they have exhausted their domestic Ginseng supply. Ginseng is known to have many herbal health benefits. I’m a believer!
