sanicle (SAN-i-kuhl) - n., any of various plants of the genus Sanicula of the parsley family with palmate compound leaves, umbels of small pale flowers, and fruit with hooked bristles.


About 40 species worldwide, and also called snakeroot or black snakeroot. Formerly used medicinally as an astringent -- thus its name, ultimately (via Medieval French) from Latin sānus, healthy, which also gave us sanitary.
