DYMIANKA SHLEIKHERA

 

It differs from the previous species in the presence of bluish double- or triple-pinnate leaves, small pink-violet flowers in racemes, rare, elongated, with bracts in fruits, 2-3 times shorter than the pedicel. The fruit is almost spherical, one-seeded nutlet with a short pointed end.

It grows in shrubs, on dry slopes and weedy places. It occurs often, but does not form thickets, in Ciscaucasia, in the Central and Eastern Caucasus, in Dagestan, Azerbaijan.

In folk medicine, the herb is used as a decoction for diseases of the stomach, tuberculosis, and general weakness; externally – with scabies, as a wound healing and hemostatic agent.
