Horse-heal

Inula helenium

Description:

Perennial, herbaceous plant

Notes:

The root was employed both as a medicine and as a condiment, and in England it was formerly in great repute as an aromatic tonic and stimulant of the secretory organs. As a drug, however, the root is now seldom resorted to except in veterinary practice.
