American Ipecac.  Back in the good old days, this had usage as both an emetic and laxative.  Tempting as this might be, we have other options now and can simply enjoy this hardy perennial for its excellent ornamental qualities.  This rivals Bowman's Root, Gillenia trifolia, but is improved by its more finely cut leaves with persistent, small bract-like stipules creating a very fine texture with white flowers.  Thanks to Mark Oppenheimer for sharing.
