[Phytomorphology] Perennial herb. The main root is either spindle-shaped or obovate, usually 2 consecutive, and the lateral roots (daughter roots) of several hypertrophs often appear around the main root of the cultivated product. Stems erect, 60-150 cm tall, recurved pubescent above middle, equidistant leaves, branches. The lower leaves of the stem withered during flowering. Stem middle leaves alternate; leaf blade leathery or papery, pentagonal, 6-11 cm long, 9-15 cm wide, base shallowly cordate, palmately trisected or sub-divided to near base, central lobe often wide Rhomboid, acutely pointed at tip, sometimes subpinnately divided, obliquely deltoid two-lobed, laterally divided into two undivided lobes, surface sparsely pubescent, abaxially often veined sparsely pubescent; petiole 1-2.5 cm , sparsely pubescent. Terminal racemes 6–25 cm long, inflorescence axillary and pedicels ± densely reflexed and adherent pubescent; pedicels middle or lower with bracteoles; calyx 5, blue-purple, outside pubescent Scallops, high-helmeted, 2–2.6 cm high, inconspicuous; lateral sepals 1.6–2 cm long; petals 2, glabrous, limb 11 mm, lip 6 mm; dimples, 1 ~ 2.5 mm, usually punched; stamens numerous, glabrous or sparsely shortly hairy; carpels 3 to 5, free. The pods are 1.5 to 1.8 cm in length; the seeds are triangular in shape and 3 to 3.2 mm long. They only have transverse diaphragm wings on both sides. Flowering from June to August, fruiting period from August to October.
[Origin distribution] Born in the mountain slopes, shrubs and forest margins. Distributed in Yunnan, Sichuan, Hubei, Guizhou, Hunan, Guangxi, Guangdong, Jiangxi, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Anhui, Shaanxi, Henan, Shandong, Liaoning and other provinces. Sichuan and Shaanxi are the main cultivated producing areas. The main root (brother root) of the cultivated product is processed into Chuanwu, and the lateral root (root) is processed into aconite.
[Harvest processing] Excavation is carried out from late June to early August. The mother root, fibrous roots, and sediment are removed. We call it "mud aconite" and process it into the following specifications: (1) Choose a large, uniform mud aconite and wash it. Immersed in water solution of edible gall bladder overnight, add salt, continue to soak, remove and air dry daily, and gradually extend the drying time, until the surface of the aconite there are a lot of crystalline salt (salt cream), the body becomes hard, "Salt aconite." (2) Take mud aconite. Wash separately according to size, immerse in the aqueous solution of edible diarrhea for several days, and cook it thoroughly with immersion liquid, remove, float, cut into slices of about 0.5 cm in thickness, and then dip in water. Drifting, the coloring liquid is used to dye the attached piece into a dark brown color, taken out, steamed until the oil surface and luster appears, and then dried to a half dry state, then dried or continued to be dried, commonly known as "black smooth piece". (3) Select the uniform size of the aconite, wash, immerse in the aqueous solution of edible diarrhea for several days, cook it thoroughly with the immersion liquid, remove and peel off the skin, cut into slices of about 0.3 cm in thickness, and dip in water. Drift, remove, steam, dry, commonly known as "white attachment."
[Herb character] Salt aconite: Conical, 4 to 7 cm long and 3 to 5 cm in diameter. The surface is grayish black, salt-frosted, with recessed bud marks on the top, and knob-like raised roots or root marks around it. Weight, cross-section gray-brown, visible small salt-filled voids and polyhedral formation ring pattern, annular ring inside the catheter bundle is not neatly arranged. Gas micro, taste and hemp, thorn tongue. Salt Aconite: It is a longitudinal section, narrow and wide at the top, 1.7 to 5 cm long, 0.9 to 3 cm wide, and 0.2 to 0.5 cm thick. The skin is dark brown, dark yellow in section, glossy and translucent, and has a longitudinal tube bundle. Hard and brittle, cross-section horny. Gas slightly, tasteless. White patch: No skin, yellow-white, translucent, about 0.3 cm thick.
