Friends in the countryside are very familiar with weeds, but the weeds we see today look like giant weeds, and many friends will admit it. In fact, weeds that resemble weeds are called magpies. Although the shape of the barnyard grass is very similar, the entire length of the barnyard grass is 120 cm, which is twice that of the barnyard grass. Friends should be better distinguished now. However, due to the "hidden" environment in which it grows, few people pay attention and are often treated as weeds.
Mountain magpies, also known as iron wolf owls, are born under strongly acidic red soil hills or masson pine forests, and often grow in large areas on waste slopes or forest margins. They are found in the deep forests of old rural areas in the south, especially in Hubei, Hunan, Guizhou, and Sichuan , Fujian, Taiwan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan and other regions are common. Its root system is quite developed, and the underground stem has the characteristics of infinite branching, which has the effect of maintaining soil and water.
In addition, Miscanthus is also a kind of weed with good medicinal value. Miscanthus is bitter, astringent and flat. It has the effects of clearing heat and diuresis, removing blood stasis, and stopping bleeding. According to the National Compendium of Chinese Herbal Medicine, It is often used in folks to treat symptoms of epistaxis, hemoptysis of lungs, hemorrhage from traumatic bleeding, bruises, burns, burns, fractures, and bite injuries; rhizomes and leaves of maggots can cure frostbite.
Because of its leaf shape, it has ornamental uses; its petiole can be woven into various baskets or other delicate handicrafts; it can also extract pigments for natural dyes. It is suitable for growing on the slopes of acidic red soil and is an indicator plant of acidic soil. It is of great significance to investigate the ecological conditions of plants.
