Goutweed is a herb that can be traded to Sanfew in Taverley for random herbs at a 1:1 ratio. It is also used in Eadgar's Ruse and Dream Mentor.
It is not recommended to grow goutweed intending to trade it to Sanfew, as the herbs received from these trades are random, and are often low-level herbs. If the player needs such low-level herbs, it is recommended to grow them (or obtain them elsewhere) as trading for them is not time-effective.

This is a variety of goutweed suitable for the windswept cold climate of the Troll Stronghold, hence why ordinary goutweed cannot be planted in the player's farming patch next to it. The player is not allowed to pick the hardy goutweed
- Hardy Goutweed used to grow naturally in the mountains near the Troll Stronghold, but the plant was harvested to extinction in the wild, making Goutweed impossible to collect until the events of My Arm's Big Adventure
