Origins: Roadsides and waste places.

Uses: The upper portion of this plant has been used to treat worms; and it is also used in an emmenagogue, stimulant, tonic, and emetic. Because it is hemostatic, the seed is also useful as an emetic. In Europe, ground parts of the plant are mixed with wine for use as an aperitif.
