The root of an evergreen bush or plant, often used for its medicinal properties.

When exposed to daylight, broomroot loses color. It should therefore be stowed in darkness and be covered with tarpaulins. A dry stowage is required.

Shipped in bags, bales or crates. May be subject to loss in weight due to loss of moisture, or to chafing and seepage from bags.
