For information only (typically historical) – I take no responsibility for adverse effects from the use of any plant.
I found no documented uses for little weaselsnout (Lagotis glauca ssp. lanceolata). In general, there is very little information about this plant.
Identification and Information
Little weaselsnout is a purple-flowering perennial herb that grows from a rhizome. It may have one or multiple stems that are 12-30 cm (5-12 inches) tall. The basal leaves are narrowly oblanceolate, 2-17 cm (1-7 inches) long, and often slightly serrate. The leaves higher on the stem are sessile, lanceolate, and decrease in size toward the inflorescence. The inflorescence is a terminal spike with purple or dark purple flowers with upper and lower lips. The styles are longer than the anthers, emerging from the flower tube. The shorter anthers are joined to the upper lip of the flower.
Lagotis glauca ssp. lanceolata has only North American distribution in Alaska, the Yukon, and Northwest Territories. It lives in meadows, near tundra pools, or on tussocky tundra and prefers wet soils.
