Found in open places and by woodlands. Leaves are narrow, pointed, pale green. Flowers growing in tall rods of tiny, golden daisy-form flowerets, heavily powdered with pollen. This plant is cultivated in gardens for its glowing beauty, and the garden variety can be used as a medicine.

Use, internal:

Remedy for most digestive ailments. Treatment for jaundice, kidney, and bladder ailments. In fevers will promote sweating. A powerful tonic of pleasant taste.

To staunch bleeding, cleanse infections. A famed wound herb. The Saracens preferred not to go to battle without this herb. The American Indians greatly favor it too. It was valued in the Middle Ages as a gangrene herb, but I for one have not discovered which necrotic conditions was implied.
