Weed is a tough perennial plant, up to 1 meter long thin and flat green leaves and flowers arranged  in ears.

The root is long and  the most healing part of the plant. This herb grows like weeds in the fields and meadows and is very difficult to remove because the rhizomes intertwine with the roots of other plants. In traditional medicine the weed is used as a remedy for bronchitis, asthma, tuberculosis, influenza, etc. It is also used in rheumatism, gout, diseases of the bladder, inflammatory diseases of the kidneys, especially ejection of small stones and sand from them.
