3. Panax L. (ginseng)

Six to 8 species, North America, Asia.

Although much attention is given to P. quinquefolius by virtue of its commercial value, it should be noted that a second native species, P. trifolius L. (dwarf ginseng), also grows in the northeastern United States (but not as far southwest as Missouri) and is used medicinally to a lesser extent.
