Heimia Salicifolia, aka Sinicuichi or Sun Opener, is a decorative perennial, growing to roughly three meters. Heimia Salicifolia is one of several sacred plants featured on Xochipilli, a sixteenth century statue of the Aztec Prince of Flowers. It is also a reportedly a powerful natural anti-inflammatory due to the compounds nesodine, lyfoline and lythrine. It has long, glossy, oval leaves stretching from a stem that becomes woody as it matures. The plant develops yellow flower clusters between its sets of leaves. As the flowers fall, the bud contains a single seed pod. These spherical brown seed pods, which look much like a coriander seed, contain thousands of tiny brown seeds.
