Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of perennial herbs, of the natural order Rosaceæ, resembling Potentilla, but with erect seeds and long, persistent, geniculate or plumose styles. There are about 30 species, natives of temperate and frigid countries, a dozen of which are found in the United States. The roots of the avens or herb-bennet, G. urbanum, of Europe, and of the water-avens, G. rivale, of Europe, Asia, and North America, have astringent and tonic properties and a clove-like odor, and are used medicinally, and from their reddish-brown color are sometimes known by the names of chocolate-root and Indian chocolate. G. Chiloense, of Chili, with scarlet or dark-crimson flowers, is cultivated for ornament.
