The Pleurisy root is a wild plant spread in North America. Because of its bright orange-red inflorescences, it's very popular as a decorative plant. It perfectly suits colourful herbaceous borders in the cottage garden and cuts in a fine figure as a
pot plant in the winter garden or on the terrace. The blossoms form outstandingly much nectar that especially attracts butterflies magically. In the English-speaking area, it's, therefore, also known as "Butterfly weed". The nectar is said to crystalize when the weather is really hot. Thereby, small balls emerge, which can be eaten as candy.

Native Americans used the root tubers against respiratory diseases (that's what the name 'Pleurisy' comes from). In homeopathy, the plant is used up to now.

Out of the fibres of the seed capsules, candlewicks had been wattled in former times.
