白花野牡丹

Chinese medicine with many uses. Pick the flower bud and sun dried it. My mom told me just drink it like tea by adding warm water. They claim able to reduce cholesterol, migraine , diabetes. Some of the uses found in the web. Anyway, the plant is very hard to grow.

用途:

1. 藥用:味甘、酸、澀、性平。有清熱利濕、止血、消腫止痛之效
2. 園藝觀賞用。


In another website, they claimed this:
"我在林海山家门前看到一盆晒干的花蕾,问他那是什么花,他说:“这是野牡丹的花,我每天清晨天未亮就起来采,因为白花野牡丹的花最好在清晨时分,花未绽放前把它摘下,这样疗效会更高,对降血压非常有效。”哦,原来如此!“别小看这一盆花蕾,我可是花了两个多星期才采集到这么多的。”他边用手拨弄着盆里的白花野牡丹,边补充说:“野牡丹的叶子对治咳嗽也很有疗效,你大概不知道吧!”
