Description and diagnostic features
It grows flat on the ground with long spiky leaves sticking up. From the orange stem in the ground not only the leaves grow but a hollow flower stalk pushes up beyond the leaves and has a head of hanging yellow and red flowers.
The flower nectar can be used in cosmetics.
The orange stem and roots are mostly used to make a tea.
The root tea is used to clean the uterus and make young women fertile.
Warning unknown to me
It grows in damper places like in runoff ditches and next to streams.
Stem division is the easiest way of propagating the plant.
