Beautiful fragrant perennial.Scrub with carved like a mountain ash, leaves in June covered with dense panicles of bright blue flowers.Preparations from cyanosis virtually sold in pharmacies.Although the rhizome decoction has a marked sedative effect, valerian superior in strength.It is used for the treatment of stomach ulcers, and as a strong expectorant for colds.The only drawback to this therapeutic agent - a very bitter taste.

wild rose or rose wrinkled
