Medicinal Uses

Anthelmintic;  Antidote;  Antitussive;  Diuretic;  Restorative;  Women's complaints.

The whole plant is anthelmintic, antidote, antitussive, diuretic and restorative[178, 218]. It is used internally in the treatment of bronchitis and dysentery[238]. Externally, it is applied to swellings and wounds and is also important in the treatment of women's complaints, especially before and after parturition[218]. It is also used in the treatment of parasitic worms[218]. The leaves and stems are harvested in the summer before the flower buds open, and are dried for later use[238].

Other Uses

Hair.

Used as a hair tonic[178]. The leaves, added to a hair pomade, promote the growth of the hair[218].

Cultivation details

Requires a sunny position, succeeding in most well-drained but moisture retentive fertile soils[1]. Plants seem to be immune to the predations of rabbits[233]. There are both diploid and polypoid forms of this species. Whilst the diploids reproduce sexually, the polyploids, which are widespread, produce their seeds without sexual fertilization[275].

Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a cold frame and only just cover the seed. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out into their permanent positions in the summer. Division in spring or autumn[111]. Very easy, the clumps can be replanted direct into their permanent positions.
