Description
A common leafy plant of the Waejiran Plateau with a soft, velvety surface to its leaves, and pairs of whorled long petalled flowers on a reedy central stem. The mud tongue is so named for the mud-like taste of its leaves, which make an excellent bitter. The flowers see some use as a vasoconstrictor.
