Flowering Rush (Butomus umbellatus)

   Flowering Rush (Butomus umbellatus), fam. Butomaceae.
   Grows along the lake sides, quite rarely around Kyiv, since it also cannot bear any water contamination.
   Flowering rush has laxative, diuretic and antipyretic action. As many our water plants, it has starchy, edible rhizomes.
