Latin name Sedum rosea, the Rosewort is a fleshy herb with red, yellow or white flowers. It is so named because of the rose-like aroma of the roots. It is edible when young, but with age becomes slightly poisonous unless cooked.

Rosewort is held by herbalists as a cure for sore throat and cold sores, as well as other sores on the body.

As an alchemical ingredient, Rosewort can be mixed to form explosive powders, such as a sleeping cloud or poison cloud potion.

Its natural location is forest areas in the northern temporate zone.
