Thirty-six images of Lonicera japonica, Japanese honeysuckle, the dried flowers of which are known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as jin-yin-hua, and the stems with leaves attached as ren-dong-teng. This herb has been used in Chinese herbal traditions for over 1000 years. Today widely used in prescriptions and patent medicines in China to treat colds and flu. Flowers contain at least a dozen antiviral compounds. Introduced to Western horticulture in 1806, a particularly vigorous selection entered the horticultural trade in 1862, and that selection has become a serious invasive weed in the Southeastern United States.
