Bonus knowledge about China: Chinese herb plant

When we see the abundant yellow flowering shrub everywhere in Paris, we know it's spring again. This  bright yellow blossom surely lightens up our eyes and feeling. No wonder it won a romantic name called " Mimosa de Paris", during the Belle Epoque.



Digged a bit, found it's an hybride of Forsythia suspensa,  is a species of flowering plant in the family Oleaceae native to China!  and it was only introduced to Europe in middle of 19th century. Here it's is treasure of today: Forsythia suspensa is 1 of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine. It contains the lignans Pinoresinol and phillyrin. Its' fruits are largely used as one important element in treating SARS and COVID in China! 


Anecdote: In a 2011 film " Contagion", Conspiracy theorist Alan Krumwiede blogs about the virus. He claims to have cured himself of the virus using a homeopathic cure derived from forsythia.
