(Left to right)
Clusters of the flower is used.
Primary traditional uses: Reducing fever and/or enhancing appetite.
The yellow, not yet opened, flowers are used.
(The essence is darker red).
Primary traditioanl use: Mild antidepressant.
Petals are used.
Primary traditional use: Mild sedative.
Yet to come is the 'bitter' produced with the hips from Rosa rugosa -and possibly hazelnuts -and maybe walnuts -and definitely whataretheycalled? small orange berries... I'll post about that at a later date...
