A very beautiful wild plant, common in the North of England, but not in other parts of the kingdom. It grows a foot and a half high. The stalk is round, firm, and branched; the leaves are numerous; they are divided each into a multitude of fine segments, so that at a distance they somewhat resemble the leaves of yarrow, but they are whitish. The flowers are large and yellow; they somewhat resemble a marigold in form, and they stand at the tops of the branches.
The fresh herb is used; they boil it in ale, and give it as a remedy for the jaundice: it works by urine.
