Kiana, all plants can be considered to have 'good energies.' The term is so nebulous that it essentially becomes meaningless. If you are looking for specific properties, that becomes a better search.
A good place to start would be two types of books, and at least one decent copy of each type: One book of edible plants in your region (since it helps narrow down the possibilities to things you may consume, though it may leave out many plants which are not good to eat, but are still good for poultices or smudges, for example), and a book on medicinal properties of plants. Cross-reference both to each other for a starting point.
