Knotweed

Polygonum Aviculare

Scientific testing has not definitely proved knotweed's effectiveness externally as an astringent or internally as a remedy for diarrhea, but pharmacologists state that these uses may be valid owing to the plants tannin content.

Cook knotweed before eating it; raw knotweed can cause intestinal disturbances. Do not confuse with smartweed, a relative with an acrid taste.
