I considered it a couple of years ago when it was up to $2 a pound but figured it would be too much like hard work. There is a wooded hillside here where it grows basically along the roadside ditch for about a quarter mile. Nothing but hydrangea. I thought about pulling a plow alongside my truck and then just going back and throwing all the roots in while somebody else pokes along in the truck. Just kidding about that.

What is the price per pound now anyway?

When it was $2 I was told it is normally more like 75 cents most years.

UKFan1996 I've been digging quite a bit of it lately around here it is 75 cents wet & 2.50 dry ,but you can dig a couple hundred pounds a day if you find the right spots like you are talking about. Where are u from anyways??? I'm from pike county, KY.

Taylor County here. Most of the land here is farmland. Every county that borders us has more woods than we do.

Do you have to chop up the hydrangea roots some after washing them?
Also, how much does poke root sell for now? I could harvest and clean a lot of it with little effort but it was only 50 cents a pound a few years back.
