Moonflower (Botrychium lunaria L.)

Lunar grove – a plant from the Centipede family (Pteridium aquilinum)


Reminds me of a common dungaree. It is distinguished by an oblong outline, deeply pinnatipartite, at the apex with a rounded blade of leaves. The lobes are reniform or semilunar. The spore-bearing part is a branched panicle with sporangia. It is spore-bearing in June-July. The semilunar vine is not often found in shrubs, on the edges of forests, in meadows that are not flooded, but is found with difficulty.

Medicinal use:

In folk medicine, the whole plant is eaten with snakebite bread, the herb is taken externally to treat wounds, ulcers.
