The plant blossoms from the end of spring through summer, when it’s covered with multiple yellow flowers, appearing at the top of the plant. The leaves have a very bitter and slightly nauseous taste and a feeble odor. Cold water extracts only a portion of their properties, but boiling water acts on them fully and forms an intensely bitter decoction By treatment with acids, they yield a neutral principle called niacin, which is crystallized, without odor, soluble in alcohol, sparingly soluble in boiling water, with a bitter character, resembling a solution.
