Brief table of contents

 [Alfalfa] [Almond] [Aloe] [Ash] [Asparagus] [Bamboo grasses] [Banana] [Barley] [Basil] [Beachberry] [Beans] [Berries] [Birch] [Blackberries] [Black marshberries] [Blooming plant] [Blueberry] [Borage, Borrago] [Box] [Bran] [Brassicae] [Bulge-nut]

<< Aconite (H) Known location: near Fort hold
Growth form: root
Uses: medicinal herb, anodyne, for heart palpitations. Root is used in a powdered form.
Outside Info: All parts of this plant are toxic. The root is used externally for nerve- related pain. It is a sedative, painkiller, and anti-fever treatment. The plant grows to 1.5m with helmut-sheped voilet flowers in early summer.

Aconite: Aconitum spp. (Monk's hood, wolfsbane, etc.). The rhizome of this blue bell-flowered perennial may be dried, ground, and used to treat irregular heartbeats. A herbaceous perennial, two to four inches/five to ten centimeters tall, violet-blue flowers, three, four or five pod-like fruit capsules. Prefers mildly acid, moist, well-drained soil, cold to temperate-zones.
Fans of murder mysteries, particularly those with Medieval settings (such as Elis Peters's Brother Cadfael), and maybe Harry Potter fans, are undoubtedly already familiar with aconite under its more familiar common names, monk's hood and wolfsbane. And, its use in Moreta, Dragonlady of Pern or in Remus Lupin's wolfsbane potion notwithstanding, all members of this family are extremely toxic. There is no part of this plant that is safe to consume. In very minuscule amounts, Chinese herbalists and some Western medical practitioners use aconite as a cardiac depressant or in topical applications for joint pain, but the therapeutic dose and toxic dose are so close to each other that even in controlled professional medical situations it is a drug of last resort. It is even possible to absorb fatal doses through the skin. Never experiment with aconite at home!

<<Adonis Uses: medicinal herb, anodyne, for heart palpitations.
Outside Info:
Grows to 20cm. Has feathery leaves with bright yellow daisy-like flowering tops in spring. All parts of the plant are toxic, and the flowering tops contain seeds which contain sedatives and heart stimulants.
Adonis: Adonis spp. A member of the family Ranunculaceae (buttercups), decoctions are used as pain relievers, to ease the heart, and as an antiseptic wash. Adonis, like aconite, is a member of family Ranunculaceae, and like almost every member of that family is highly toxic. Even goldenseal can cause extreme damage when taken for an extended period. Adonis should only be used by medical professionals in highly controlled doses.

Ash: Fraxinus spp. Ash was one of the species of trees brought to Pern by the colonists. They were planted in the higher reaches [DLG1/II:15].
Medicinal use: The dried bark and leaves can be used in decoction as a diuretic. Ash is a tall, deciduous tree with smooth grayish bark and toothed-edge oblong leaves up to 3" long. The bark contains tannin, an astringent. It may or may not have diuretic properties. (The only sources still citing it as medicinal are the reprint of a 1931 herbal and a highly credulous book on the herbal arts, which also lists planetary alignments for plants.) Ash is more valuable as a lumber product, especially in shipbuilding (it's highly elastic) and furniture.

<<AsparagusUses: asparagus tinticure used (primarily in Weyrs) to stave off drunkedness. Also is a part of the 'killer cure' for hangovers.
